The deadline for booksellers to submit title recommendations for the 2017 ABC Best Books for Young Readers Catalog is this Friday, June 30. Frontlist titles publishing between January and October 2017 can be submitted via an online recommendation form on BookWeb.org or through Edelweiss.
Holiday titles will not be included so stores can use the catalog year-round. In late summer, there will be time to add last-minute title discoveries to the catalog.
The 2017 catalog cover will feature art from Windows, written by Julia Denos and illustrated by E.B. Goodale, to be published by Candlewick Press this October.
The catalog is scheduled to land in stores in early October. A catalog order form will be available to ABA member stores later this summer. All members of the ABC Children’s Group at ABA will automatically receive 250 catalogs with no imprinting.
Questions about the ABC Best Books for Young Readers Catalog should be addressed to ABC Children’s Group Manager Gen de Botton.
