Ben has recorded an audio version of Leigh Bardugo’s ‘The Lives of Saints’, an in-world guide to the saints of the Grishaverse. The digital audiobook will be released on December 8, 2020 by Macmillan Publishers. The official synopsis can be found below.
Dive into the epic world of international bestselling author Leigh Bardugo with this audiobook adaptation of The Lives of Saints, the Istorii Sankt’ya, featuring tales of saints drawn from the beloved novels and beyond.
These tales include miracles and martyrdoms from familiar saints like Sankta Lizabeta of the Roses and Sankt Ilya in Chains, to the strange and obscure stories of Sankta Ursula, Sankta Maradi, and Starless Saint.
Out of the pages of the ‘Shadow and Bone’ trilogy, from the hands of Alina Starkov to yours, the Istorii Sankt’ya is a magical keepsake from the Grishaverse.
In today’s episode we’re chatting with Ben Barnes.
His love for storytelling began early: on stage performing with the National Youth Music Theatre. Since then his career has told the story of an artist who possesses true grit, a love for craft, and a desire to explore whatever he hasn’t done. He shares how blind persistence landed him his first agent, and how a secret injury helped him create one of his most recognizable roles.
For Ben, perspective and perseverance is key. Moving through the peaks and valleys of this industry requires trusting what you have to offer and choosing to be empowered regardless of circumstance. And that’s exactly what Ben continues to do. Listen to the podcast below:
Ben will be participating in Empire Convention’s ‘Virtual Hangout Day’ charity event on Saturday, June 20th. He will be participating in a Q&A session, a flashback meet & greet, and private one-on-one sessions with a select few fans. 10% of the proceeds raised from this event will go towards Ben’s personal charity of choice, Stand Up To Cancer.
