On June 4, Indies Introduce panelists and authors will take part in a special virtual event to present the adult titles chosen for the Summer/Fall 2020 program. Booksellers can register now for the event, which will take place on Zoom.
Publishers are once again offering specials on 10 adult titles and 10 kids’ titles chosen by panels of American Booksellers Association member booksellers from across the U.S. as the top debuts of the upcoming publishing season. The Summer/Fall 2020 Indies Introduce program features titles for adults, young adults, and middle grade readers, all publishing between June and October 2020.
A presentation of the kids’ titles will be held during the virtual Children’s Institute program, which will take place July 15-16.
