Calling All Midwives

October 3rd, 2013 by Steve Lehman · No Comments · Acquisition News

I’m pleased to announce . . . I’m thrilled to announce . . . I couldn’t be happier to announce . . .

Isn’t there any other way to say this? How about: I’m ‘eaven and ‘ell chuffed ter tell what HighBridge has picked up the bloody rights to produce audiobook editions of the remaining two titles in the Call the Midwife trilogy: Shadows of the Workhouse and Farewell to the East End. Call the Midwife is, of course, Jennifer Worth’s brilliant memoir of birth and death and everything in-between in London’s post-war East End and the basis—need I say it?—of the acclaimed BBC series that airs in the States on PBS. And that’s not all, old fruit: stay tuned for an announcement soon on the narrator.

Shadows of the Workhouse and Farewell to the East End will hit the stores on Valentine’s Day next year. If you pick them up as soon as they come out you’ll have just enough time to listen to both before Season 3 of the TV series begins in the spring.

It took a while to land these, but all’s cushty now here at HighBridge, just luvverly jubberly. Would I feed ya a porky pie? Not on your porridge knife!
