Top 5 of 5 PLA Handouts: A Current Affair

Later today at PLA Kaite Stover is moderating the newest installment of the popular Top 5 of 5 series [click here for info on past ones]. Kaite has made the slides and handout available on her personal page. Click here or see below. 

This year's topics are: science, international fiction, diverse youth books, political issues and LGBTQ+

Here are the goals of this program, and really the entire series:
1: Have 5 go-to titles in each current event area to promote to readers2: Gain confidence in talking with patrons about fiction/nonfiction topics in the news that are on readers' radar3: Understand the appeal of current events areas for readers and respond professionally with appropriate suggested reading
Thank to Kaite for passing on so everyone, near and far, can learn.

Floundering at the desk when asked for a book you might not be familiar with? Get “go-to” lists of the latest and best books/authors for popular fiction, genre fiction, and nonfiction for leisure readers. RA experts will showcase hot topics trending in the news (science, international fiction, diversity in youth books, political issues, and LGBTQ+) and what frontline library staff should know about them: the top five books, up-and-coming authors/titles, and trends.
