CHICAGO (November 29, 2016) — Sullivan Serials, publisher of The American Fathers serial, has announced that the series’ first two episodes has been made available to 15,000 public libraries across the United States. Librarians and library patrons are encouraged to request “The American Fathers Episode 2,” and “Sheila & Jasira: Episodes 1 & 2 of The American Fathers Serial” for download. The two audiobooks were recently released on 28 digital platforms, including the three major platforms used by U.S. libraries: Baker & Taylor’s Axis 360, Hoopla, and Overdrive.
As a full cast recording, The American Fathers is unlike most audiobooks. Each book has a separate narrator and different actors have been cast to play each of the major characters.
“I’m excited to compile a great group of voice actors,” said Adrianne Cury, casting director for the serial, “We have a lot of them here in Chicagoland. And I love the idea of giving back to the community that’s given so much to me, by finding more jobs for them.”
Henry L. Sullivan III, the company’s founder, is also the author of The American Fathers and the creative director of the serial’s full-cast audiobook production. The voice actors in The American Fathers are all part of Chicago’s acting community, with previous work experience spanning Steppenwolf, Chicago Fire, and About Face Theatre.
Sullivan Serials is a publisher of well-respected, serialized science fiction in ebook, print, and audiobook formats. Based in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, the company’s titles are produced in collaboration with local actors, writers, graphic designers, and engineers. The company’s flagship title, The American Fathers, began its progressive serialized release in August of 2015, and continues to release new episodes regularly.
