Southeastern Mass. Reader's Advisory Roundtable (SE-RART) Meeting
The Southeastern Mass. Reader's Advisory Roundtable (SE-RART) continues its 2019-20 study of readalike lists with a discussion of readalikes by mood. This meeting will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020, 10 am-12 pm, at OCLN Central Site,
We are going to talk about best practices for developing readalike lists by mood, using the benchmark title(s) as a starting point (i.e. "Feel-Good Stories").
Benchmark Title: The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion OR A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
Instead of reading the benchmark title AND a second title, please read as much of the benchmark title as you can and bring along one or two possible readalike titles, along with a brief annotation or quote from a journal or magazine review that gives an idea of why each would be a good readalike by mood for the benchmark title (i.e. if the reader is in the mood for a feel-good or hopeful, but not necessarily religious, book).
Reading the entire benchmark title is not required to attend! New members and curious visitors are always welcome to register and come to a meeting to see what it's all about. Registered attendees will be emailed short additional reader's advisory-related readings ahead of the meeting.
