We’re proud to introduce Richard Devoe, owner and bookseller at Fair Trade Books in Red Wing, Minnesota.
Circe, written by Madeline Miller and narrated by Perdita Weeks, has won the 2019 Indies Choice Audiobook of the Year Award. The six finalists for this award were selected by a jury of three booksellers, then voted on by independent booksellers around the country.
The Indies Choice Awards celebrate the books that independent bookstores around the country are championing. The Audiobook of the Year category was added last year due to the growing popularity of audiobooks, and the first ever winner was Lincoln in the Bardo.
Circe by Madeline Miller is based on Greek mythology, but as Alexandra Alter of The New York Times says, Miller has managed to recast “the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right.”
