News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Watch — 2/19-2/25

Turns out that blizzard thing the other week was not actually Snowmageddon, because this one is Snowmageddon.  (At least until the next time it snows.)

***

Anyone who emails me the imprints of all the books listed (or houses if no imprint is available) will win the NPR Books Grid for the prior week that includes, in addition to the information below, interviewer, pub date, imprint, genre, post-interview Amazon ranking, pre-interview ranking (if the book was mentioned on Shelf Awareness and I was able to look up the number before the interview), and interview hyperlink.

* indicates the interview is a rebroadcast.
