Multiple award-winning voice actor, acclaimed educator, and entrepreneur Samantha Paris celebrates the release of her captivating memoir, Finding the Bunny.
As Peter Coyote writes in the book’s Foreword, “Finding the Bunny is an eye-opener, a thought-provoker, an education, an adventure and an inspiration. (It’s) about transformation more than anything else— offering ideas that may challenge or freshen your thinking, enrich your life and light your own path.” Finding the Bunny is an engaging and heart-warming combination of memoir, business book, uplifting story and inside look at today’s most ubiquitous, most influential, and most invisible art. Through narration, flashback, inner monologue, and snappy laugh-out-loud dialogue that moves seamlessly from past to present and professional to personal and back again, Finding the Bunny artfully peels back the curtain on the fascinating world of voice-over, and much more. With untethered honesty and humor, voice-over genius Paris reveals her intensely personal story— that of a woman in mid-career, recovering from a disastrous childhood, dealing with a failed but far-from-loveless marriage, running a hugely successful business, shepherding thousands of students through the learning process so that they can realize their dreams, while dealing with a burning internal conflict about what happened to hers.
Multiple award-winning voice actress, Voicetrax San Francisco Founder/CEO and author Samantha Paris will share a unique book presentation at the Books Inc. store on Chestnut Street on Thursday, July 12 at 7 pm. This fast-paced and enlightening program will peel back the curtain on the fascinating yet little-known world of voice acting along with Samantha's true confessions from her own inspirational journey.
Samantha will be joined by other live and local voice actors who will act out excerpts of the book with her, and then treat the audience to preview snippets of her groundbreaking audiobook in the works (complete with voice actors and sound effects), followed by a lively Q & A session.
A short, entertaining audio trailer can be enjoyed here, summing the book up in 90 seconds by local voice actors:http://www.voicetraxsf.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Finding-The-Bunny-Trailer-Promo.m4v
In the words of ABC’s Dan Noyes, ““Don’t miss Samantha Paris’ uplifting message -- works for everyone, even if you've never stepped into a recording studio. At times, funny, emotional, gripping, and above all, triumphant.”
