This September, Wax Audio Group will continue their run of pressing literary milestones and classics into vinyl. This next pressing will be Nelson Mandela’s Favorite African Folktales, featuring the voices of Don Cheadle, Whoopi Goldberg, Samuel L. Jackson, Alan Rickman, and the music of Vusi Mahlasela.
Hachette Audio, a part of Hachette Book group, announced a collaboration with independent record label Wax Audio Group. The partnership kicked off today with the release author David Foster Wallace’s speech This Is Water.
Wallace’s speech is available now in two different collector’s editions; one in “goldfish orange” and the other in a blue-and-white design inspired by water. The series kicked off partially to celebrate the late author’s birthday this month on the 21st of February, which would have been his 56th birthday.
