Also, being reprised at the event is a hugely popular activity – people can record in Blackstone’s studios and audition to be a narrator. Signups should be done prior to the event due to limited availability at www.blackstonepublishing.com/warehousesale.
Plus, with purchases event-goers will get a free Blackstone cloth bag, and a coupon for a free audiobook on Downpour.com.
“We want to give people in the valley an opportunity to acquire our books and audio books for just $5, and we want to support JPR and SOPTV,” said Josh Stanton, Blackstone’s CEO, “This will be our last warehouse event, so we hope people take advantage of the sale and have fun at the Fair.”
Rick Bleiweiss, Blackstone’s Head of Business Development stated, “Prior Warehouse Sales and Family Fairs have raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Library Foundation, the Ashland Food Bank and two fire departments, and this one should do the same for JPR and SOPTV -Blackstone will donate 100% of the profit that the event raises to them.”
Paul Westhelle, JPR’s Executive Director commented, “JPR is thrilled to be one of the beneficiaries of this year’s Blackstone Audio Sale. Like Blackstone, JPR believes in the power of storytelling to feed our curiosity, engage our imagination, create empathy and celebrate what it means to be human.”
“Blackstone Publishing and SOPTV strive to deliver content that educates, enlightens, inspires and entertains. SOPTV is honored to be a beneficiary of this year’s Blackstone Publishing Warehouse Sale,” said Mark Stanislawski, President and CEO, SOPTV.
