Hi Everyone!
Please consider sharing this with anyone whom you think would be interested in this...

Many of us are avid readers. Whether you buy from audible.com, an online retailer like AudioBookStand, or whether you're one of those who can't wait for that day each week when Bard, the digital download site from NLS comes out with its new list of available downloads, it's fair to say that all of us have some enjoyment from reading a good book or two.
But have you ever wondered what it is that makes the narrators you hear so good? How do they get selected? What makes them so amazing? Well tomorrow you just might learn a thing orr two about this process.
Join Jonathhan Matte tomorrow, Saturday October 8 2011, at 1 PM easttern as he gives you a glimpse into the production of NLS books. Jon will be interviewing Lou Gutierez, the man in charge of Benefit Media Inc out of New York City.
Lou is in charge of producing books that get sent to NLS for distribution to its readers. Find out about lou's backgrround, starting from his days with AFB (AMerican Foundation Of The Blind) to his current work producing books for NLS users. Learn what makes a good narrator, how they are selected, how the  books are produced, and more..
At the end, you'll have a chance to call in and leave comments and maybe ask a question of Jon about the information he's gained from this interview.
If you're interested in how these great NLlS books you've read are produced, then this is a must hear interview.
