Audiobook Oscars The Audio Publishers Association listed finalists for the Eighth Annual Audie Awards in about 15 categories and tapped several African American contenders for its juried recognition of audio books and spoken-word entertainment. Among them are the audio book versions of Stephen L. Carter's Emperor of Ocean Park and two Walter Dean Myers's children's books, The Blues of Flats Brown and In Daddy's Arms, I Am Tall.

Other finalists: The Nikki Giovanni Poetry Collection, read by the poet; Vernon E. Jordan Jr. for solo narration of Vernon Can Read! Last but not least, Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis, were cited for their rendition of Zora Neale Hurston's Every Tongue Got to Confess.

Blackboard's Children's Pick Come by Here, Lord: Everyday Prayers for Children by Cheryl Willis Hudson, with photographs by Monica Morgan (Just Us Books) was selected Children's Book of the Year by Blackboard, Inc. The award was presented on May 31 at Book Expo America in Los Angeles.
