A Book I Would Truly Enjoy Narrating and Producing

I've just submitted an audition to produce the audio of a book that contains many of the lessons I learned in my 40 year career as "Harry the Librarian." It is Sustainable Thinking: Ensuring Your Library's Future in an Uncertain World, by Rebekkah Smith Aldrich, and is published by the American Library Association. I would be proud to be in their "stable."
This content is important to me. My 40 year career in Public Libraries included Executive Director of 6 town and city libraries. I oversaw planning and implementation of the renovation and expansion of a large town library, “built” a new city library after the old one had its 8th major flood, and commissioned two other cities’ libraries whose Directors left when construction was “complete.” I still call myself "Harry the Librarian." I’m an Audible Approved Producer with the technical skills to produce a worthy product, but it’s up to the "Rights Holder" to evaluate the appropriateness of my "performance."
