Genre Training With the Staff of Darien [CT] Library

Good morning Darien Library.

We are going to be having two programs this morning and they are brand spankin’ new just for your guys.

First, from 9-10:30 is Demystifying Genre.  In this program I will break down the genres, their appeal, and talk about some key authors. It’s going to be a whirlwind tour of genre fiction, but with the slides as your guide in the days and weeks that follow, you can take your time to let it all sink in.

Then, from 10:45-Noon I am presenting a training entitled: Working with Genre Fiction Readers.  Here we will work together to take what we learned about genre fiction in part one and apply it to helping genre fiction readers, no matter their preferred genre.


The slides aren’t just for the Darien folks, by the way.  Even if you do not get to partake in the me talking part of the presentations, anyone can click on the titles of each program to bring up the shared slides. 

There are still 3 more programs on the docket for this trip, so stay tuned.  I also hope to find some time to write up the notes from Monday’s book club meeting too. But one step at a time.
