Forthcoming Titles Librarians Like!

The Publisher-Librarian Connection
On the first Tuesday of each month, Nora Rawlinson of EarlyWord hosts GalleyChat, an hour long chat (in 140 characters or less) with librarians and other interested parties about the Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) they have been reading.

It is a great way to learn about titles coming out later in the year which customers may want to read or reserve. Here are 21 titles mentioned during the April GalleyChat which took place Tuesday afternoon, 4/7/2015:

Armada by Ernest Cline - a new novel from the author of Ready Player One
