Virtual Galley Group

One of the best parts of my job at SCLS is going into the city for publisher previews, and getting to see all of the upcoming titles. I head into New York City empty handed, and return home with overflowing bags filled with ARCs (advance reader copies) and F&Gs (folded and gathered pages – which translates into an ARC of a picture book).

These preview titles are available for you to look at through system delivery, but I’ve been trying to think of a way to effectively publicize their existence.Thus, the evolution of a Virtual Galley Group!

It is simple and works like this: Check out the Virtual Galley Group board on our Pinterest Page here:

Browse through the titles shown, and let me know if you see something you would like to read by leaving me a comment below with the title of the book, your name, and library to send it to. After you read the book, send it back with your comments – did you like it? Love it? Hate it? I will then create a post here so others can get some feedback on the title.

So check out our current ARCS and then come back here and let me know: which title do you most want to read?

Happy Reading!
