THE SPEECH

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Peter Marinker

History • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

One hot August day in 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., Martin Luther King, Jr., gave his “I Have a Dream” speech. This appealing audiobook describes the historical events leading up to and following the speech, which has affected the lives of millions since that time. Peter Marinker uses many voices to enliven this history set piece. Listeners will be surprised to learn that critics gave King’s speech a lukewarm reception, and most who heard it live didn’t think it was one of his better speeches either. Marinker’s “you-are-there” approach to the material will mesmerize both Baby Boomers and those hearing about this event for the first time. He makes this small gem come alive for listeners of all ages. E.E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2014]
