ARRT Crime Fiction Genre Study Notes Now Available To Everyone

Long time readers of the blog know that throughout 2014 and 2015 I was the Coordinator of the ARRT Crime Fiction Genre Study.

Well, now that it is all done, I have updated the website and opened up all of the notes from our meetings.

That's right, now anyone who is interested in running their own crime fiction genre study, or those of you who just want to learn a bit more about helping Crime Fiction readers can access our assignments AND the notes for each meeting here on the genre study's website.

You can go to each assignment/topic page and pull up specific notes, as seen here on the page for our meeting on Espionage and Forensic Thrillers.

Or you can use this link to access the folder with all of the notes in one place.

At ARRT we take our mission to develop readers’ advisory skills and promote reading for pleasure through public libraries very seriously. And while only members of ARRT can join the actual genre study meetings as they happen, we want to help as many of you as possible in your work with leisure readers.

So, please feel free to go to website and use our agendas and notes to help craft your own genre study; just make sure you credit ARRT if you do.

As I put the finishing touches on the website today, I have to say I was a little sad.  Running the genre study was a lot of work, but it was also really fun. Thank you to all who helped coordinate and those who attended.

I hope to see many of you on February 4th as we introduce the brand new Speculative Fiction Genre Study.
