But what is a book buzz presentation?

Nearly 20 times a year, Team Macmillan Library hits the road (actually or virtually) to talk about books. For those librarians unable to join us, here is your go-to portal for all the goods on our favorite books. #ReadersAdvisoryMadeEasy

“Buzzing about forthcoming books is a great way to keep your customers coming back, and for us, it’s turned out to be a great way to build community.”
— A. Issac “Ike” Pulver, Director, Saratoga Springs Public Library, Saratoga Springs NY in a
Booklist RA Showcase
