The Art and Artifice of Audiobook Narration with George Guidall

Jun 03, 7:00 pm

Conference Room B Council Bluffs Public Library


Widely recognized as the world’s most prolific narrator of audiobooks, George Guidall is a professional actor, a 3-time Audie award winner for best narration and the recipient of a lifetime achievement award for over 1,300 unabridged narrations. He has been delighting listeners for over 20 years, including classics, such as “Crime and Punishment,” “The Iliad,” and “Don Quixote.”

Over the years, Guidall has earned praise for these as well contemporary titles, such as Lilian Jackson Braun’s “Cat Who” series of cozy mysteries that showcase his mastery of human and feline voices and Daniel Silva’s 2015 thriller, “The English Spy,” for which he won the Audie Award, the recorded books equivalent of an Oscar, as Best Male Narrator.

A veteran Broadway and TV actor, Guidall shares personal stories, anecdotes and out-takes, and reads selections from his repertoire of audiobook recordings. Linking the authors’ words to the actor’s craft, Guidall captures audiences with wit and charm, taking them behind the scenes of audiobook production. He’ll explain the subtleties of narration and engage the audience in Q and A.
