AutobiographyMemoirBanner2015

  • Daring: My Passages by Gail Sheehy; Narrated by Bernadette Dunne from HarperAudio
  • Living on Air by Joe Cipriano and Ann Cipriano; Narrated by Joe Cipriano from Joe Cipriano Promos, Inc.
  • My Life in Middlemarch by Rebecca Mead; Narrated by Kate Reading from Blackstone Audio Inc.
  • Not My Father’s Son by Alan Cumming; Narrated by Alan Cumming from HarperAudio
  • Yes Please by Amy Poehler; Narrated by Amy Poehler, Carol Burnett, Seth Meyers, Mike Schur, Eileen and William Poehler, Patrick Stewart, and Kathleen Turner from HarperAudio

“Amy Poehler’s co-writers—Parks and Rec showrunner Mike Schur, SNL “Weekend Update” co-anchor Seth Meyers, and Eileen and Bill Poehler, her mom and dad–read with her on the audio version of Yes Please, which also features cameos from Carol Burnett, Patrick Stewart, and Poehler’s dream narrator, Kathleen Turner. This cast, and a final chapter recorded in a live reading at the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles, make for an audio extravaganza rather than than a mere audiobook, and I found it thoroughly delightful from beginning to end. The performance brings so much to the material I really can’t imagine reading Yes Please any other way than by ear.” ~ 3R’s Blog
