Reader’s Advisory: Tips and Strategies for Happy Readers

2016 February 9

What should I read next?

Have you ever struggled to answer that question? The Texas State Library will host a webinar on March 8th to help you answer it!

The Reader’s Advisory team from the State Library’s Talking Book Program will provide tips, new ways of approaching genres, and general reader’s advisory resources. Meet our presenters:

  • Saidah has been a librarian for 10 years in academic and special libraries. Her reading habits are eclectic, but her all time favorites are Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges and The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. She is not ashamed of her interest in early Stephen King.
  • John has been a librarian for more years than he can count—unless he takes off his shoes, and nobody wants that. While his favorite writers are P. G. Wodehouse and Donald Westlake, he also loves a good nonfiction book about snakes (Snakebite Survivors’ Club), sharks (The Devil’s Teeth), or sports (One Last Strike).
  • Laura Jean may be a newly minted librarian (University of Texas, 2014), but she spent the previous 15 years working as a library assistant in both public and academic libraries. Although primarily a fan of historical fiction, Laura Jean will read just about anything. Her all time favorite book is The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis.

Please register for the webinar and join us on March 8th!

If you’re unable to attend, the archive will be posted on our Online Training Site.

    Do you happen to have a direct link to the webinar archive link for this webinar? I couldn’t seem to find it in the Online Training Site.

    By the way, John, One Last Strike is a great recommendation. Tony LaRussa had a rare gift as a manager.
