CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/22/14 -- June is audiobook month (JIAM). Every year, June is filled with activities intended to increase audiobook listenership. For the second year, Spoken Freely has teamed up with Going Public to celebrate JIAM by offering Summer Shorts '14, a collection of poetry, short stories and essays with sale proceeds benefitting the charity, ProLiteracy. Throughout June, stories, poems and essays are released free each day via Going Public (goingpublicproject.wordpress.com). Purchase of the full collection includes 20 bonus pieces.
Summer Shorts is the brainchild of award winning narrator Xe Sands. Although Summer Shorts is an American event, this year there is a strong Canadian presence.
Dawn Harvey, actress and narrator from Calgary, AB, narrates two pieces by Canadian author Jane Cawthorne, one of which will be the free daily listen on June 27. The second can be heard only through purchase of the collection.
Tanya Eby is married to a Canadian and narrates a story written by L. M. Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables.
Heather Henderson has ties to Vancouver Island. Her selection is from a classic of B.C. literature, The Curve of Time, which was recently released by Canadian publisher Post Hypnotic Press.
Stefan Rudnicki and Mark Turetsky have both lived in Canada and Carrington MacDuffie narrates the Canadian "Constable Molly Smith" mystery series.
Summer Shorts '14 is available through Tantor Audio at www.tantor.com.
This press release was written by Dawn Harvey at The Dawn of Voice.
