Tina Fey Tops Audie Awards with Memoir


Rife, Susan, Sarasota Herald Tribune


'Bossypants" by Tina Fey won Audiobook of the Year at the Audio Publishers Association's 17th annual Audies Gala on June 5 in New York.

Judges said that "Bossypants" "delivers on all fronts and listening to Fey tell the story of her life is like going out for a coffee with an old and funny friend."

The book also won the Biography/Memoir category.
