Continue celebrating Audiobook Month throughout June!

AudiobookSYNC’s Week 8 titles feature American cultural history told from insiders’ perspectives, honoring Juneteenth on June 19th.

The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez is based on Operation Pedro Pan, an early 1960s project to send unaccompanied Cuban children to the United States in order to avoid what their families feared would become Fidel Castro’s denial of parental authority. 

It is paired with the classic by African American scholar W.E.B. Du BoisThe Souls of Black Folk contains many essays on race and equality. 

These titles celebrate the power of audiobooks to overcome cultural stereotypes and give listeners the opportunity to stretch beyond their own assumptions.

Available for a Limited Time
Remember — grab these titles before they are replaced by a new pairing on 6/22/2017! While the download time is limited, your listening time is not. Once you have downloaded the MP3 files, the eAudiobook is yours to keep.
