APA PRESENTS: PRESS PLAY – AN EVENING WITH YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS AND AUDIOBOOK NARRATORS
Thursday, March 24, 5:30 PM–6:30 PM
Join us for Press Play, an evening celebrating all things audiobook! This year, the Audio Publishers Association event—which has become a favorite among past PLA Conference attendees—will be open to all conference registrants and will feature a panel discussion and Q&A with some of your favorite authors and audiobook narrators. Press Play will kick off before the PLA 2022 All-Conference Reception, so attendees can get their author fix before finishing the night with hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and dancing!
No ticket required.
PLA thanks the Audio Publishers Association for its support of this event.
