Word needed   Help... I'm In Search Of

I'm in need of a word to use as part of a title on DSG book quilt.  I need a word or short phrase that would describe a individual that is very good at reading, giving each character a "voice".

I have tried on several occasions to use online dictionary and thesaurus but have not found what I'm looking for.  It can be a relatively unused word, meaning he would need to look up the meaning.

So you are writing about someone who is reading a book out loud and using different voices for different characters?

Someone who is acting out the different parts in the story using his/her voice?

Could you just call this person an "actor"?   Maybe you could look up synonyms for "actor" ....   thespian?

Yes, and your word thespian I believe will work.  One of the problems I find when looking up synonyms is that they are usually common and simple words, where I would like more unusual words.

I think the title shall be Thespian Pie......the gentleman is a math professor and good friend of DS.  DGSs have loved he reading to them since they were very little.

Thanks for the help

I was thinking Bibliophile.  Thespian is probably more what she was looking for.

or Thespian Pi, since the gentleman is a mathematician.

Even tho DGS will only be nine he knows what Pi is, so would be an easy guess for him to figure out the author of the book, but if I use pie he might have to think awhile.
