Suggestions Needed for the 2023 Odyssey Award

Hi ALSC Personal Members! Have you listened to a truly outstanding audiobook this year? If the answer is “YES!” then please consider suggesting it to the Odyssey Award Committee for consideration.

Medal given to the Odyssey Award winner

The Odyssey recognizes excellence by a producer or director for accomplishment and/or innovation in the production of an audiobook. We select two winning titles each year; one for children (ages 0-14) and one for young adults (ages 12-18). The two winning titles must exemplify the highest standards of direction, narration, engineering, and technical achievement.

To meet eligibility, audiobooks must have been released in the United States between November 1, 2021 and October 31, 2022.
