Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in light of the temporary closures of public libraries and bookstores across the country, BookPage will be pausing the shipment of the April issue until the majority of our subscribing locations have reopened to the public. We look forward to sharing the print edition of the April issue as soon as we can. In the meantime, you and your patrons can access the digital issue through Issuu.com. Click on the arrow to page through the issue.
NOTICE: NO BOOK SALE WILL BE HELD ON MARCH 14 DUE TO LIBRARY POLICY OF CANCELLING EVENTS AS A PRECAUTION AGAINST COVID-19. Effective immediately, the bookstore is closed until further notice.
