Don’t Miss the October 2014 SE-RART Meeting! #readersadvisory
Our very first Southeastern MA Reader’s Advisory Roundtable (SE-RART) meeting is Wednesday, October 22, 2014, 10 – Noon at the Holmes Public Library, 470 Plymouth St., Halifax. We will be embarking on a year-long study of the mystery genre, starting with the Private Investigators subgenre. Everyone attending should read the benchmark title —The Godwulf Manuscript by Robert B. Parker (which introduces his well-known Spenser character) — as well as a second title in the Private Investigators subgenre and be ready to talk briefly about the benchmark title and your second title in terms of Joyce Saricks’ appeal factors: story, characters,tone, style, and pace.
Registered participants will receive an email with links to info to read before the meeting, and we will have printed copies at the meetings, as well.
If you’re looking for ideas for your second title in the Private Investigators subgenre, we’ve put some here. Just click on the Private Investigators tab.
This Southeast Reader’s Advisory Roundtable (SE-RART) is open to all library staff members in the southeastern Mass. area. Please register for the SE-RART on the Massachusetts Library System website. We plan to meet every other month, October through June — not always on Wednesday — so feel free to register for any that you can attend. You don’t have to commit to attending all of the meetings to join the group! All the 2014-5 dates are on MLS Workshop Registration calendar and on the blog.
The SE-RART group is brand new, and we’ll all learn as we go. We are still looking for libraries with meeting rooms that hold 15-25 people to host future meetings. Hope to see you on the 22nd!
Don’t forget to register!
