Elisabeth Moss performed a passage from Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” at Toronto’s Union Station last week to mark the launch of audible.ca, Audible’s dedicated service for Canadians that elevates Canadian voices and listeners.
“We’ll be working with Canada’s incredibly vibrant Can-Lit community,” Don said. “We work daily to support the professional creative class wherever we go.”
The website offers a selection of more than 300,000 titles, including more than 100 new titles from Canadian authors in English and French. For one month, Canadian listeners are receiving free access to Audible’s special edition of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” narrated by Claire Danes and including material Atwood wrote exclusively for Audible, and Catherine Leroux’s Quebecois novel “Le Mur Mitoyen,” performed by Julie Le Breton.
“Audible is giving performers opportunities to lend their voices to some of the greatest stories in the world and expose the ideas and words of authors to entirely new audiences,” Moss said.
The launch also included an event at Montreal’s Gare Centrale, where Le Breton read from Leroux’s book.
