Syracuse University Press and Sound Beat: Access Audio, which is produced at Belfer Audio Laboratory and Archive at Syracuse University Libraries, have partnered to produce audiobooks. The first two audiobooks, Reservoir Year: A Walker’s Book of Days by Nina Shengold and Harry Haft: Survivor of Auschwitz, Challenger of Rocky Marciano by Alan Scott Haft, are now available for purchase  through several vendors, including Apple Play Books, Hoopla, Libro.FM, and forthcoming through Audible. 

“We are so excited to be able to provide an alternate format for our authors and readers. We’ve been watching the trend of the growth of audio books for several years. These first two audio books are just the beginning for our partnership, and we’re looking forward to planning the next ones. Audiobooks provides another medium to reach audiences and to share stories that might otherwise have not been told.”—Alice Pfeiffer, director, Syracuse University Press
