Contemporary Literature Audio Books

We've decided to add a new category to LearnOutLoud.com. Under Literature we now have the subcategory Contemporary Literature. We're going to pull together all the literature on audio that we feel can be deemed educational, and that was roughly published post-1960.


We're not contemporary literature scholars here, so please feel free to give us suggestions at suggestions@learnoutloud.com, if you feel there's particular authors we've left off. Keep in mind their works must be on audio book, and also that we haven't added a lot of contemporary literature titles yet as it's a new category.
