At this year’s American Library Association Annual Conference in Washington, DC, Random House Audio, OverDrive and First Book partnered to produce a “community-sourced” audiobook of L. Frank Baum’s classic, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. More than 300 volunteer narrators completed the recording, one paragraph at a time. The finished production is now available for download at www.firstbook.org, for a small suggested donation. All the proceeds will benefit First Book’s efforts to promote child literacy.
