SNL stars Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, as well as SNL alum Maya Rudolph, are among the stars that have lent their voices to the upcoming audio book recording of Sarah Vowell's Unfamiliar Fishes. Unfamiliar Fishes recounts the history of Hawaii and the efforts of New England missionaries to Americanize the island. Written with her characteristic wit and erudition, Unfamiliar Fishes is an informative and entertaining insight into a fascinating period of American history.
The audio book is now available for pre-order on Amazon (here) and will be released on March 22, 2011. Having been accompanied on many a bus-ride by the audio recording of Sarah Vowell's Assassination Vacation, I can guarantee that you'll love it, especially if you have even the vaguest interest in American history.
