An Insert for Librarians, Sponsored By HarperCollins

Catch the HarperCollins Buzz!

The HarperCollins marketing team is back from ALA MidWinter, where we had a great time talking to librarians about our new titles for Summer 2010. We buzzed at the booth, gave away Advance Reader’s Editions (ARE’s) and hosted a Buzz Panel.

If you weren’t able to come to our Buzz Panel, you can get the buzz right here at your desk top. Just click on the titles below to hear why we’re excited about each one and get valuable background information.

Please share the buzz with your colleagues. Your next favorite RA titles, book club picks, and One Book/One Community selections await.

In addition, we'll be holding monthly giveaways for sets of Advance Readers Editions. We've just completed the February giveaway. Check back here in March when we will hold another one.

For your ordering convenience, click here for a spreadsheet of all the titles.

Best, Virginia
