Spring Adult Book Buzz: Join Us!

Prepub Alert is heading into fall coverage, but there’s still plenty of time to discuss great spring titles. Please join me for an April 10 webcast, Spring Adult Book Buzz, as library reps Virginia Stanley (HarperCollins), Ali Fisher (Macmillan), Elenita Chmilowski (Perseus), and Jennifer Child and Erica Melnichok (Random House) share their top picks. Among them: Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Ford’s Canada, his first novel in six years. Beautiful Ruins from the popular Jess Walter. Chelsea Cain’s Kill You Twice, next in the New York Times best-selling Archie Sheridan series. The Red House, a new novel of family rapprochement from Mark Haddon, author of the Whitbread/Commonwealth prize winner The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Gone Girl by the always scary Gillian Flynn. And award-winning broadcast journalist Lynn Sherr’s Swim: Why We Love the Water. That’s Tuesday, April 10, at 3:00, EDT. Register now!
