I’d like to thank the many librarians who were able to join us for the first AAP Librarian Book Buzz Presentation last week! It was exciting to have so many publishers in one room, dedicated to the library marketplace.
Just because you’re not local to NYC doesn’t mean that you should be left out! Below are the titles I presented and buzzed about – staff favorites, book you MUST have and the important mid-list books you don’t want to miss! With only 12 minutes to present, I could only touch upon some highlights. There are many more where these came from, so be on the lookout for more from our department.
