Young teens, middle teens, older teens--all listening

Read More AudiobookSYNC is committed to offering teens all along the age spectrum some great summer listening. Since potential SYNC participants range from the early teens of middle school through graduating high school students, we work to include audiobooks that include some that speak to all, some skewing to the higher end of the teen range, and some to the lower.

Read More One of the unique strengths of listening to books is the seamless communication of verbal culture. How words are pronounced correctly, and inflections and emphases that communicate cultural specificity, arrive intact allowing the listener to engage more deeply with what lies beyond the words.

American Revelations

American Revelations

Read More While it’s comforting to believe we know what is happening around us, there are times when we really aren’t aware of how others are managing what we know about our shared America. In our penultimate week, we’re happy to be able to share two award-winning titles that give listeners opportunities to discover American life and lives in new ways.
Truthful Historical Fiction

Truthful Historical Fiction

Read More No matter the genre, good fiction has the capacity to present truths more directly and accessibly than any other word-based communication. We tell and listen to stories for entertainment—yet, just as significant to us is that these entertainments reveal reality compactly and with memorable coherence. Week 13 gives us a pair of historical fiction novels that breathe life back into times past.
Getting Beyond Colonial Occupation
