Here it is, our spring preview. We’ve once again read the tea leaves of the upcoming season to pick promising titles in 15 categories and provide you with what we think is a sharp mix of works by big-name authors, auspicious debuts, buzzy indie books, and some that just have the X factor.
We do our adult announcements issues twice a year, and for each we ask publishers to send us everything they have coming up in a season. This ends up being many thousands of titles, only about 750 of which make it into print. So if you want to take a deeper dive into what’s on tap for spring, head on over to publishersweekly.com/announcements, where we have a searchable database of everything submitted.

Welcome to our Spring 2019 Children’s Announcements issue! Here, we speak with a number of diverse debut authors who landed agents through the Twitter pitch contest #DVPit. We profile author Anne Ursu, whose new novel for young readers, The Lost Girl, blends fantasy with themes of female empowerment. Finally, a children’s book collector rebels against the Marie Kondo decluttering movement. All this plus our comprehensive A–Z listings of titles being released by children’s and YA publishers between February 1 and July 31. Happy reading!
