Just how hot are audiobooks? They continue to grow, surpassing all estimates!

Did you know:

  • Nearly one-in-five Americans now listen to audiobooks - Pew Research, 2018
  • Publishers, such as Hachette, Penguin Random House, and Macmillan have doubled their audiobook production in the last few years. - The New York Times, June 2018
  • In the first eight months of 2017, publishers’ revenue from audiobooks grew 20% from the same period a year earlier, while print books only rose 1.5% and e-books slipped 5.4%, according to the Association of American Publishers, which collects data reported by 1,200 publishers. - Wall Street Journal, Feb. 2018

Come hear all about them from an all-star panel at our next lunchtime Talks@WMG on Sept 12th. You’ll hear from:

  • Nita Basu (Senior Marketing & Publicity Coordinator, Hachette Audio)
  • Beth Anderson (EVP & Publisher, Audible, Inc.)
  • Amanda D'Acierno (President, Publisher, Penguin Random House Audio Group)
  • Mary Beth Roche (President and Publisher, Macmillan Audio)

  • Who is listening?
  • What content is working?
  • Where should our marketing be focused?
  • How should we think about audiobook metadata?
  • Why is now the right time to invest in the audio format?
  • And get answers to your questions!
