Librivox is the immensely popular volunteer-run public domain audio book recording project founded by Hugh McGuire in August, 2005. In Hugh’s first interview on The Writing Show, he invited the world to record books with him. Four months later, he and three volunteers return to update us on Librivox’s spectacular progress.

Please join Hugh, Kara Shallenberg, Kristen McQuillin, and Chris Goringe as they reveal:

  • Why they enjoy participating in Librivox
  • What they’ve found surprising about reading books aloud
  • What’s involved in putting together an audio library from scratch
  • How Librivox volunteers share some surprising characteristics
  • What their favorite projects have been, and why they chose them

We also read a few of our favorite passages aloud.

Join Hugh, the volunteers, and Writing Show host Paula B. as we joke, laugh, and ring in the new year by celebrating books and reading.
