Utah-native actor Kirby Heyborne has started to make it in show biz. But his latest honor has a funky literary angle. ---

A key role in this year's The Three Stooges, building on his appearances in a number of national TV advertising campaigns, has Heyborne's acting career rolling. The highlight of his year, though, just might be the award he received at last month's American Library Association conference in Anaheim. Heyborne's audiobook performance of the young-adult novel Rotters won the organization's Odyssey Award for Excellence in Audiobook Production. The recognition specifically singled out Heyborne's "versatile character voicing" as a key element of the award.

But Heyborne wasn't through charming the nation's librarians. At the awards presentation itself, he performed a special original song dedicated to librarians. Take a look, though -- the amateur video and audio aren't up to the professional standard of Heyborne's award-winning performance.
