The Future of Audiobooks for University Presses

Please join us for a discussion about the emergence and booming growth of audiobooks, how university presses can increase revenue, and how audiobooks are reaching new markets and increasing accessibility.

The Audio Publishers Association reports that audiobook sales exceeded $1.3 billion in 2020, 12% more than 2019 and that 46% of Americans 18 or older have listened to an audiobook. Presenting, and available to answer your questions, will be Michele Cobb, the Executive Director of the Audio Publishers Association, who will present “Audiobooks: A Look at the Market,” and Bill Wolfsthal of Speechki, who will present “Synthetic Narration and How It Can Help You Produce Audiobooks.”
