April LibraryReads on Audio!

Every time a new LibraryReads list is published, we share the titles here on The Booklist Reader, along with links to Booklist reviews. (Click here to see the April 2017 LibraryReads.) For those of you who prefer to listen rather than read, we now also hunt down the producers of the audio versions and provide the ordering information below—a handy tool for both personal listening and collection development. Please note that we have not yet had time to review these new and forthcoming audios, but be sure to grab all of the downloadable marketing materials available from LibraryReads!
