In May, January traveled to the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta for the TASTE OF THE SEASON event. She performed a preview of a piece that will be premiering at the Alliance this fall -- Native Guard, by United States Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey. This exciting new work is a theatrical interpretation of the book by the same name, which won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for poetry.
Also in May, January recorded two exciting titles -- one brand new, and one a classic. Dollbaby, the beautiful debut novel by Laura Lane McNeal, and Coma, the 1977 breakout novel by now-bestseller Robin Cook. Dollbaby launched this week to stellar reviews, and the audio of Coma will be available later this summer.
