Announcing A New Star Wars Audiobook Original and Comic Con News

The countdown to Comic-Con@Home is on! The famed annual West Coast multi-genre entertainment and comic book convention is going fully virtual this year, and will run a packed schedule of events online from July 22–26, 2020. Fans can spend time with their favorite authors and view exclusive panels without ever leaving the comfort and safety of their homes—and Penguin Random House Audio will be a part of the fun (at “booth” 1514 and 1515)!

This year we’re thrilled to release a brand new Star Wars audiobook exclusive: Doctor Aphra by Sarah Kuhn. In this audiobook original, read by a full cast, fans will hear rogue archaeologist, Doctor Aphra—in all her fast-talking, scheming glory—for the very first time. Check out the video above to get a sneak peak, and then save the date for our panel at the con (details below).
