The new Audible version of The Free State of Jones–with Mahershala Ali (who plays Moses Washington in the movie of the same name) narrating the text and me narrating the preface and afterword—debuts on May 3, 2016. Can’t wait to hear Mahershala’s beautiful speaking voice!
For Mahershala’s reflections on the experience, click here and listen to his own words.
