Audiobooks are the new wunderkind of the publishing world, driven by seven years of double-digit growth and a booming trade audience for the format. But what does this mean for university presses? Hear from UP panelists on audio publishing and licensing, and from retailers on the growing audience for serious non-fiction audio, in retail and library spaces. We’ll discuss how to identify books that will work in audio, how to produce and record an audiobook, and what audio means for accessibility and scholarship, as well as the challenges and benefits of audiobooks. And we will leave plenty of time for questions!
