Barbara Rosenblat is one of the most beloved and sought after narrators of audiobooks in the country. Her extraordinary range of accents and abilities over the years has earned her eight coveted Audie Awards from the Audio Publishers Association. The Audies are the industry's Oscar and Barbara has won more of them than any other single narrator. In 2014, she was nominated for 3 more.
The industry watchdog publication, Audiofile Magazine has named her one of their Golden Voices and a 'Voice of the 20th Century'. Barbara has earned over 40 Earphone Awards from Audiofile for superior recordings.
Billboard Magazine has said that 'Barbara is spoken of with the same reverence and affection that the music industry reserves for Frank Sinatra and the Beatles'. Barbara has amassed over 400 titles in a distinguished body of work and is always delighted when a new manuscript arrives with the promise of yet another wonderful audio journey.
She will be at the HEAR Now Festival June 19-22. Learn more at hearnowfestival.org.
