Harvardwood Presents: How to Launch an Audiobook with Author John Wasowicz MPA '88

October 28, 2020 at 5:00pm - 6pm PT

Your questions about writing, narrating, scoring, recording, producing, and marketing an audiobook will be answered by John Adam Wasowicz MPA '88, author of the upcoming novel Slaters Lane and two previous Mo Katz mysteries. Slaters Lane is a mystery about a murder that’s committed in Alexandria, VA in April 2020—in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.  John will be joined by the team of independent artists who created the audio version of Slaters Lane.  

The program will be moderated by NPR newscaster Nora Raum.  Confirmed panelists include Nicole Lacroix, on-air host of Classical WETA in Washington, D.C., who narrated Slaters Lane; James Jacobs, a WETA host and composer, whose music is heard in the audiobook; and Matt Lynch, who engineered the project.In addition, Journalist Derek McGinty, who narrated the second Mo Katz audiobook Jones Point, has been invited to join our virtual audience to comment on his experiences providing narration in the pre-pandemic environment.
