In this class, we will focus on how to make a book come alive.
Please choose a book---fiction, non-fiction—whatever is exciting for you-----and choose 2-3 pages to read. You can choose 2 separate passages, or 2 different books---if there is time, each person can do a second one.
If you can, let there be some dialogue between 2 or more characters. If you can, let the dialogue be among men and women---so you get to voice a character whose gender is different from your own.
If you have any questions regarding Audiobook narration---as a newcomer to this craft, or as an experienced narrator----please ask them at the beginning of the class------we can answer them, by example, as each person reads their passages.
(And, of course, as questions arise, please ask them during class as well!)
