Fran Romer Workshop

Calling all Booktalk enthusiasts!
The Young Adult Services Division of the Suffolk County Library Association is looking for discussion leaders for our annual Fran Romer Workshop on Thursday, March 9, 2017 from 10 am – 1 pm at the Brentwood Public Library.  The theme this year is “Stories Retold”
Discussion leaders are needed to lead groups of approximately 10-12 librarians, discussing specific Teen books with the “stories retold” theme.  The focus of Fran Romer is Booktalking!  We would like leaders to give a booktalk and to demonstrate to the group how librarians can book talk at their own library.
FYI…What is a Booktalk?
·         A booktalk is NOT a review or a book "report." A book report tells somebody you read the book, a booktalk tries to convince the person to read the bookThe key to booktalking is to "sell, don't tell." Thus, a booktalk is more of an advertisement or a commercial.
·         A booktalk is a Performance - you want to "hook" the listeners, use every trick you can think of to make the booktalk fun, exciting, and suspenseful.

2017 Fran Romer Books for discussion groups

Group 1 Fairy Tales Retold
Ash by Milanda Lo - Cinderella Retelling

Group 2 Fairy Tales Retold
Entwined by Heather Dixon - 12 Dancing Princesses Retelling
        
Group 3 Shakespeare Retelling
