Introducing Buzz Pick of the Month

Presented by IndieBookBuzz and Bookfinity
Love reading books, talking about books, and then doing it all over again? Great – we do, too! Join IndieBookBuzz and Bookfinity as we kick off a brand-new virtual book club, Buzz Pick of the Month.

Each month, we’ll share a new book that we’re loving and bring you exclusive author Q&As, giveaways, and more on the IndieBookBuzz and Bookfinity social media sites – all leading up to a fantastic author event with your name on the invite list! Plan on engaging discussions with fellow book lovers and a great outlet for community in a time of isolation.

What’s our goal? As usual, it’s to spread the booklove by sharing title news with indie booksellers and encouraging book readers to buy from their local indie bookstores. As we bring you each month’s Buzz Pick, we’ll be sharing the Shop Local message and ways for readers to support indie bookstores across the country.

Announcing our February Buzz Pick:
Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas

We’re beyond thrilled to announce our February Buzz Pick: Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas! Stay with us all through February to get an inside look at the exceptional prequel to Thomas’ award-winning, #1 New York Times bestseller The Hate U Give. Then, on February 23rd, join IndieBookBuzz, Bookfinity, and HarperCollins for A Conversation with Angie Thomas, a virtual event. Angie Thomas will join Ingram’s Nicole Robinson-Hamilton to discuss revisiting the world of Garden Heights in Concrete Rose, a searing and poignant exploration of Black boyhood and manhood. This event will promote buying through independent bookstores and is free and open to the public.
