I Am Malala Audiobook Wins Grammy

By Dianna Dilworth 

The audiobook version of I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai has won the Grammy Award for Best Children’s Album.

Professor Neela Vaswani narrated the audiobook version of the text. Surprised by the nomination, Vaswani was happy to accept the award on behalf of Yousafzai. Forbes has the scoop:

“I had no idea it was even possible for a children’s book to be nominated,” said Vaswani, a professor of creative writing, literature and cultural studies…Vaswani accepted the award on the same stage graced by today’s early winners, which range from a cappella sensation Pentatonix to EDM superstar Tiesto.
