FOLD Challenge

The FOLD Challenge

We partnered with the Festival of Literary Diversity to showcase unique perspectives and storytellers, with a new theme every month.
The FOLD (Festival of Literary Diversity) Challenge encourages listeners to thoughtfully consider the stories they consume, and the voices that are absent, by asking one important question: Who is missing? Each month, we'll challenge you with a new theme to listen around, plus suggested listens within that theme.

What is the FOLD?


The Festival of Literary Diversity began in May 2016, and is the first literary festival devoted to celebrating underrepresented authors and storytellers. The festival takes place in Brampton, Ontario, providing an important space for writers to discuss their craft; and the challenges involved in creating stories that ask difficult questions, expose hard truths, and push literary boundaries. Audible has been a proud partner of the festival since 2017.
