We are very fortunate to enjoy the support of Stephen Fry as our patron.
“I’m proud and delighted to be patron of the first audiobook charity to offer downloads to its members and excited about what this will mean for all print impaired people who can now listen on-the-go.”
Stephen has been patron of Listening Books since 2005. As a creator and huge lover of literature, and reader of the best selling ‘Harry Potter’ audiobook series, he understands the importance of promoting the spoken word for all. In addition to sharing his passion for audiobooks, he has supported the charity by presenting The Listening Books Award for the Spoken Word at The Guardian Hay Festival, recording an audio advert, and supplying signed prizes for our annual Christmas raffle.
