The Art of Booktalking-- Presentation Documents

Later this morning, I will be presenting The Art of Booktalking at RAILS in Burr Ridge, IL.  All of the details are here.  I believe they are not only live streaming it, but also recording it, so you could still see it after today.

We have three speakers and  an informal, “salon” atmosphere, so there is not a formal presentation.  I did however, prepared a short list of resources I will be referring to.  I also have a slide show of the book covers of the 6 books in my short example book talk.  So whether you were there today or watched a recording, please consider the part of the post under the divide, your official handout.
