Any changes to the existing API are stalled at the moment .
I don't think there are any plans to ever include that sort of information in an official API though .

What kind of description do you want?
I'm afraid there aren't lots of information at LibriVox.

Here's a description about Jane Austen.
You can get it at https://librivox.org/api/feed/authors/?id=155
<xml>
<authors>
<author>
<id>155</id>
<first_name>Jane</first_name>
<last_name>Austen</last_name>
<dob>1775</dob>
<dod>1817</dod>
</author>
</authors>
</xml>
Cheers,
Masa
