Spring Titles: Public Affairs

One of the goals of EarlyWord is to bridge the gap between publishers and librarians. We’re excited to bring you a new feature of EarlyWord — podcasts sponsored by publishers and created for EarlyWord readers, about their new books. This is an opportunity to hear directly from publishers and to get a jump on major titles of the Spring.

First up is Susan Weinberg, publisher of Public Affairs, a house that made a major splash last year with What Happened by Scott McClelland. Public Affairs specializes in nonfiction, particularly politics and books by journalists. You can download or listen to the podcast by using the menu at the top of this post.

Susan’s focus is titles to be published in April and May and a special title coming in January that has not been reviewed yet.

Below is the bibliographic information for the titles in the podcast. You can also link to this Excel spreadsheet with ISBN’s.
