The amount of audiobooks performed by fantastic, talented women is limitless. We asked our fellow Penguin Random House Audio staffers to weigh in and shout out some of their favorite women narrators in the spirit of Women’s History Month. Join us in a round of applause for this group of women and the stories they lend their voices to!
“One of my favorite audiobook narrators is January LaVoy â€“ what canâ€™t she do?? January has serious range and has narrated books from nearly every genre, from YA like Libba Brayâ€™s classic Diviners series, to romance titles by Alexa Martin and Denise Williams, Star Wars novels, even the voice of Charlotte the spider in Charlotte’s Web! Her reading of Anita Hillâ€™s Believing is an especially appropriate choice for Womenâ€™s History Month.”–Katie Punia, Vice President, Publicity
“One of my very favorite audiobook experiences from the last year was listening to Crying in H Mart, written and read by Michelle Zauner. As a Japanese Breakfast fan I already knew I loved Michelle’s singing voice, but hearing her read her memoir was totally different. It’s always special to hear someone’s story in their own voice, and Michelle is a strong, stoic narrator throughout–basically the opposite of how I felt as a listener who cried until the end.”–Erin Murphy, Associate, Marketing
