Hooray! Hooray! It's here! It's here! The day I look forward to twice each year when I get to show you all the books I edited for Chronicle Books for the upcoming season. Today we shall see all my Fall 2017 (or F17 as it's known to it's friends) titles -- all of which are coming this fall to booksellers and other fine retailers near you, and all of which are already available for pre-order right this very minute at all the usual preordering places, if you happen to be so inclined.
It's really an astonishing roster of talent I got to work with this time around, and I feel extremely lucky to have gotten to make these amazing books with all of these amazing people -- not to mention my enormously talented colleagues around this joint who make everything just right and beautiful. Let's dive in, shall we?
