The October 2022 Panels
From Page to Performance: Breaking the Silence Around Domestic Violence through Audiobooks
Author Kelley Armstrong, audiobook narrator Stephanie Cozart & audiobook producer Andy Paris will be discussing how audiobooks can enhance the power of speculative fiction and storytelling to break the silence around violence against women and girls.
Kelley, Stephanie, and Andy will be attending the panel session at 8.30pm ET, on October 1st, 2022 (Saturday)
KELLEY ARMSTRONG believes experience is the best teacher, though she’s been told this shouldn’t apply to writing her murder scenes. To craft her books, she has studied aikido, archery and fencing. She sucks at all of them. She has also crawled through very shallow cave systems and climbed half a mountain before chickening out. She is, however, an expert coffee drinker and a true connoisseur of chocolate-chip cookies.
STEPHANIE COZART loves telling stories. She is an actor, audiobook narrator, teacher, director, and coach. She has appeared on film and TV and onstage in NYC and in major regional theatres all over the country. She is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA and Actors Equity. Her all-time favorite role in life is being a mom.
ANDY PARIS is an Emmy-nominated writer, a director, and an actor. His most recent play, which he co-wrote with Anushka Paris-Carter and directed Off-Broadway, is called Uncommon Sense. Andy has also had a career in audiobooks spanning more than 30 years, and now owns Voiceworks Audio, an independent audiobook, podcast, and voiceover production house. He is currently based in Winston-Salem, where he is the Assistant Professor of Devised Theatre at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
