Maus Audio Book Now Available

Molly Johanson

Art Speigelman’s influential graphic novel “Maus” has just been released in audiobook form, just in time for first-years to begin reading it for Encounters. Penrose Library has made digital downloads of the audiobook free for students, and almost all of the first-year class has taken advantage of this opportunity.

“This is ridiculous. How can you understand Maus without being able to see it?” said Professor of Religion and General Studies Kan Dent.

While some professors object to the audiobook, first-years have largely reacted positively.

“I really love how they describe what’s happening in each panel and the symbolism behind it. Comic book visuals are just so tedious to understand,” said first-year Joe Dangerous.
