edelweiss editors picks

Our popular Editors' Picks series benefits the work of Ascend. In these webinars, we aim to amplify underrepresented voices in publishing by asking editors to share their favorite titles to the Edelweiss community of booksellers, librarians, reviewers, and book lovers. Editors' Picks webinars are free to attend and are a great way to learn about all titles!
