We are entering a busy conference time with Midwinter beginning and PLA just around the corner. Each time there is a conference, Library Journal puts together a Galley Guide, a list of all of the ARCs you can expect to find at the conference.
Here's the thing though, these guides are actually more useful to those left behind or to access and consult after attendees return. Why?

And click here for the 2020 Midwinter Galley Guide and get a jump on what books everyone is going to be talking about by reading about them today.
