Hi everyone,

George Guidall will be here on April 26!  Here is the information from our
press release:

The Big Read Dearborn will present a free, special program featuring the
man behind the voice, George Guidall, at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 26,
2014, in the auditorium at Henry Ford Centennial Library, 16301 Michigan
Avenue, Dearborn.

            George Guidall has been delighting listeners and relieving long
car trips for more than 20 years.  As an audiobook narrator, Guidall has
narrated and recorded more than 900 unabridged novels including classics
like “Crime and Punishment” and best sellers like “Snow Falling on Cedars”
and Lillian Braun’s “Cat who . . .” series.  Guidall is widely recognized
in the audiobook industry and has received two Audie Awards (the industry’s
equivalent of an Oscar) during his career.

            In addition to being an award-winning audiobook narrator,
Guidall has a long established career as a Broadway actor.  During his
40-year career in the theatre that includes many starring roles, he has
shared the stage with Kevin Kline, Morgan Freeman, and Meryl Streep.  Guidall
has received an Obie award for best performance off Broadway. His acting
career also includes frequent television appearances.

            As a special part of his Big Read Dearborn presentation,
Guidall will perform a dramatic reading from “The Call of the Wild” by Jack
London.  Guidall considers narration an art form that speaks to the primal
human need for narrative.  During this program, he will also share personal
stories, anecdotes and out-takes about narration production.

            This event is free and open to the public.  Attendees will have
the opportunity to be entered in a raffle to win a Guidall audiobook.  For
more information, please call the Library at 313-943-2330.

            View a complete list of more than 35 events exploring *The Call
of the Wild* at www.bigreaddearborn.org.

Keep an eye out for other events, such as the* “*Do You Hear the Call?” Photo
Exhibit opening on May 1 (turn in photos on April 28), and C. Alex
London (author
of the children’s series, *Dog Tags*) on April 30.

The Big Read Dearborn ends with a Wrap-up Party at Henry Ford Centennial
Library on Saturday, May 17, featuring real sled dogs, gold panning, an old
time photo booth, popcorn, Animal Tales author signing, and more.

The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in
partnership with Arts Midwest. The program is designed to revitalize the
role of literature in American culture and to encourage people to read for
pleasure and enlightenment.

Thank you,
