Readers' Advisory Roundtable - West, Genre Study: Literary Fiction – Uplifting, affirmative In-Person

Join the Reader’s Advisory Round Table – West genre study for a discussion of the affirmative side of  literary fiction.  We will explore this subgenre, meet new titles, and discuss how to use them to meet the reading needs of our users.  We are meeting via jitsi to talk about the appeal of these titles, the readers who may enjoy them, and ways to incorporate them into our readers’ advisory services.  Our benchmark title for this session is The Kids Are Gonna Ask by Gretchen AnthonyIn our format, we all read the benchmark, then a second title in the genre as our individual choice.  Our discussion includes our reactions and thoughts on the benchmark title, perceptions of our individual selections, and their shared characteristics.

For questions about the Roundtable or suggestions, contact Jan Resnick (njrezz@comcast.net) or Alene Moroni (amoroni@forbeslibrary.org).
