Caedmon to Publish Classic Works in Digital Audio
Caedmon, the HarperCollins audio imprint, will release a number of classic works in digital audio for the first time. On sale this week from Caedmon are new recordings of five novels by Thornton Wilder: the Pulitzer Prize–winning The Bridge of San Luis Rey, The Cabala, Heaven's My Destination, The Ides of March, and The Woman of Andros. Also out this week are Joy in the Morning and Maggie-Now, two novels by Betty Smith, the author of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. In February, Caedmon published the digital audiobook of Black Boy by Richard Wright, and in March, Caedmon released The Death of Sitting Bear, a new collection of poetry from N. Scott Momaday, narrated by the author, as well as Momaday’s 1969 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, House Made of Dawn.
Caedmon, which is celebrating its 68th anniversary, became part of HarperCollins Publishers in 1987. Further audiobooks to be published this year by Caedmon include all three volumes and an abridged collected edition of The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn; two more novels from Thornton Wilder, The Eighth Day and Theophilus North; two additional works by Richard Wright, The Outsider and Uncle Tom's Children; a long out-of-print book by Betty Smith, Tomorrow Will Be Better; and Earth Keeper, a new work by N. Scott Momaday, with more releases planned for 2021.
