Kent State (Unabridged edition)

By Deborah Wiles
Length: 1 hours 58 minutes

Kent State (Unabridged edition)

“Details the shooting on the Kent State campus around Vietnam protests. Audiobook production made it feel more like a play, as many characters spoke in dialog form versus quoted text. I loved the experience.”

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You

A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning

By Jason Reynolds & Ibram X. Kendi
Narrated by: Jason Reynolds
Length: 4 hours 11 minutes

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You

“To say that I wish books like this had been part of the curriculum when I was in school would be an understatement. History classes reduce(d) racism to something of the past, something that existed only among small groups of hateful people. But that simply isn't the case. And that is why books like Stamped should be required reading, for young readers and adults alike. Jason Reynolds makes an incredibly complex issue (that should be simple but isn't) accessible. His words, and narration, are powerful. And important. ”

Clap When You Land

By Elizabeth Acevedo
Narrated by: Elizabeth Acevedo & Melania-Luisa Marte
Length: 5 hours 32 minutes

Clap When You Land

“Put this book at the top of your listening list! Clap When You Land is a beautifully written and compellingly narrated story of two half-sisters who are unaware of each other's existence until their father dies in a plane crash. Elizabeth Acevedo not only writes with an exquisite voice, but she and Melania-Luisa Marte alternate narrating with voices that carry into the readers heart and soul. One of the best audio books I have listened to in a very long time.”
