Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales available in July

Just a quick mention of the July release of Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales, an audio book with 23 folktales read by an outstanding group of performers: Alan Rickman, Matt Damon, Charlize Theron, Forrest Whitaker, Helen Mirren, Samuel L. Jackson, DebraMessing and Hugh Jackman are just a few of the participants. The audio book is a project of Artists for a New South Africa and Hatchette Books Group. The proceeds from the book will be used to benefit children who have been orphaned by HIV and AIDS in South Africa.

To learn more about the audio book, listen to excerpts, and to order a copy for yourself, visit Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales website at

  1. Ooh. I definitely want to listen to this one. I love folktales. It's interesting because I visited Alyce's blog, At Home With Books before coming here and she had a review up on Nelson Mandela.
