Southeastern Mass. Reader's Advisory Roundtable (SE-RART) Meeting
The Southeastern Mass. Reader's Advisory Roundtable (SE-RART) concludes its 2019-20 study of readalike lists with a discussion of Readalikes by Author. This meeting will be held on Wednesday, Apr. 29, 2020, 10 am-12 pm, at the Carver Public Library, 2 Meadowbrook Way, Carver.
We are going to talk about best practices for developing readalike lists by author, using the benchmark title(s) as a starting point (i.e. "If You Like So-and-So").
Benchmark Title: Any book by Elin Hilderbrand OR Lee Child
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 author for the author of the benchmark title (i.e. "If You Like Elin Hilderbrand", "If You Like Lee Child").
We will be discussing best practices for developing readalike lists; using NoveList for developing readalike lists; pros and cons of using author as a basis for readalikes, etc.
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.
