For decades, Kate Winslet has brought the classics to life on screens big and small, and starting March 8, the Oscar and Emmy award-winning actress will have a new forum to ignite our imagination-- our ears!
As a part of Audible.com
's series The A-List Collection
, Winslet will lend her voice to Émile Zola's Thérèse Raquin
, a novel favorited by Kate in her teens.
Winslet gives a sneak preview of the powerful reading in the above featurette, explaining how she jumped at the challenge of narrating Zola's "extraordinary love affair," as the medium of sound allows her to tell a story that "sink[s] into your soul."
Other notable celebrities who take part in the series are Colin Firth reading The End of the Affair by Graham Greene, Anne Hathaway reading L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and Naomi Watts reading Summer by Edith Wharton.
