Narrator of the Year: Bahni Turpin

Narrator Bahni Turpin has been a part of many truly ground-breaking audio productions spanning every imaginable genre. For many, it was her contribution to the multicast recording of 2009's The Help that made her a household name to the audio aficionado: a book that soared to the top of Audible's Best Sellers list even before becoming a hit in print and a blockbuster movie. In 2016, Bahni has lent her voice to award-winning works of literature, hard-hitting feminist manifestos, and heart-felt stories for kids and young adults. Bahni Turpin can do it all and her performances have brought audio-as-art-form to a whole new level. We are proud to have her as our pick for Audible's 2016 Narrator of the Year.
