Finally, I’d like to talk a bit about a new project.

High school, and I’m not a great reader. For my AP History class, I had to read The Scarlet Letter. It was arguably the worst experience with a book I’d had up to that moment. I was so lost and frustrated. I wanted to read the classics so badly. I could tell there was something amazing there that was hidden from me. But I couldn’t get to it.

Fast-forward ten years or so, and I discover audiobooks. It was literally life changing. Suddenly, the whole world of the classics is open to me, and I can enjoy The Three Musketeers, David Copperfield, Jane Eyre, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. All of these stories I had always wanted to read, I could now enjoy with a little help from a narrator.

I want to other kids who might be struggling to have the same experience.

So that’s why I’m working on an initiative to make my library of Classic Tales free for all public schools. It’s a tricky plan, but I really don’t want other kids to struggle like I did. If they have ready access to these productions, I think I can help to prevent that. But I need your help.

Please become a supporting member, or purchase one of our larger one-time support options. If you can’t do that, please leave us a review, or tell your friends about us. I want to make this free for kids and schools with limited resources. So anything you can do to help us to grow and sustain ourselves will help us put the classics into the ears of the next generation. Thank you.
