Three books from Hachette Audio have been nominated for GRAMMY Awards for Best Spoken Word Album. This includes: America Again by Stephen Colbert, Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls by David Sedaris and The Storm King by Pete Seeger.
Sedaris has previously been nominated for three GRAMMY awards. His audio books Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim and When You Are Engulfed in Flames were previously nominated for Best Spoken Word album and Live at Carnegie Hall was nominated for Best Comedy Album. The nomination is the first for the other two authors.
Since 1994, Hachette Audio has produced seven GRAMMY award-winning audiobooks. ”Receiving a GRAMMY nomination is a thrill,” stated Michael Pietsch, CEO the Hachette Book Group, so grabbing three nominations in the Spoken Word category is just extraordinary. It’s wonderful evidence of the superb work being done by Hachette Audio.”
