The Bookmark is back to helping you with your Top City Reads Bingo card and this week it's all about debut authors. Autumn says she specifically seeks debut authors out because it's fun to discover new authors and recommend them to other people. It's like having your own secret you can't wait to tell. Speaking of "telling", is it obvious that a debut author is new to the trade and their book is the first thing they've had published? Our hosts don't think so.

Our hosts spend this episode giving rave reviews to some of their favorite debut authors and discuss what exactly qualifies an author as "debut". They look forward to future works by these authors and think you should to. Check out these debut books.
