Archives - Reading Group Guides Newsletter

I spent two great evenings with readers this week, both return engagements to locations where I had been last year. I presented 55+ titles that are perfect for summer reading while also giving readers a peek ahead to some great books for fall/winter. I have read many of these books, and it was fun to share my anecdotes about them, as well as information on the authors.

When we last left off, I was headed to BookExpo, the annual book trade show event where the upcoming seasons’ books are showcased. For the sixth year we hosted our Book Group Speed Dating event. 200(!) booksellers, librarians, book group leaders and bloggers were in the audience to hear about the upcoming titles for Fall/Winter 2017. As promised, we are sharing the PDFs of the PowerPoint presentation here. We have broken it out into five sections so you can see what was selected and presented easily. We also compiled a spreadsheet here that has all the titles in one handy document. Whew! I shared a photo of our publisher partners above (still smiling after their nine speed dating sessions), as well as a view of what part of the room looked like that day!
