AudiobookMobile Tour

Alright y'all audiobook lovers in Brooklyn and Philly get ready! The AudiobookMobile is heading your way!! The APA is launching this campaign to help gain awareness about the growing audiobook industry. It sounds like an awesome experience so if you live in the Brooklyn or Philadelphia area be sure to check it out! You can find out more information about the tour below!

The AudiobookMobile is the biggest ever consumer awareness campaign for audiobooks. Anyone who stops by the colorful, custom-wrapped truck, which proclaims--"A Good Book Speaks Volumes"--can speak to staffers about audiobooks, catch clips from the studio on a monitor as they wait for an ice pop, and try their hand at the prize wheel where they can win t-shirts, ear buds, posters, and free audiobook downloads.
The APA has partnered with marketing agency GoGORILLA Media to create a custom-wrapped “AudiobookMobile” that will travel to five cities in the northeastern United States August 30-September 27, introducing the audio format to new listeners.
The AudiobookMobile will make stops at the
National Book Festival in Washington, DC (8/30),
Baltimore Comic Con (9/6), and the
Brooklyn Book Festival (9/21),
as well as at libraries in Philadelphia, PA and Darien, CT,
reaching more than 250,000 potential listeners!
In addition, in celebration of the AudiobookMobile and to bring further awareness of the audiobook craft, top APA narrators, including Norman Dietz, Richard Ferrone, Tavia Gilbert, Katherine Kellgren, Robin Miles, and Sean Runnette, will perform with the Golden Voices Theatre, followed by a Q&A facilitated by APA President Michele Cobb. Performances are scheduled for

Free Library of Philadelphia in Philadelphia, PA (9/27).
Full details of the schedule are listed below.
The AudiobookMobile’s eye-catching design features colorful super-sized headphone graphics and proclaims the campaign’s slogan: “A Good Book Speaks Volumes.” The truck is outfitted with speakers and video screen to broadcast audio and video clips from the recording studio to draw in passersby. There’s even a spot for a photo op: one side of the truck asks attendees to fill in the blank “I love audiobooks because…” and share their reasons via social media using the custom hashtag #listenlit.
In each market volunteers from APA member publishers and GoGORILLA Media’s professional street team will be on hand to engage with consumers, talking with them about listening, answering any questions they have about audiobooks and offering free downloads to take home. Attendees will also have the chance to spin a prize wheel mounted to the side of the AudiobookMobile for a chance to win giveaways including headphones, t-shirts, buttons, posters, and more.
