With autumn just around the corner, we’re delighted to celebrate our Fall 2014 list by sharing a few tunes with you. We’ve paired each title on the list with a different song. In most cases, the pairings came about because these songs have been running through our heads ever since we dove into these outstanding books in manuscript form.
Do you associate a book (any book!) with a particular song, or vice versa? Would you like to suggest other song pairings for our fall books? Let us know in the comments. Happy listening!
