Hear several collection development specialists rave about their favorite titles gathered from the exhibit floor. Moderated by Susan Maguire, Booklist’s Senior Editor, Collection Management and Library Outreach. Panelist to include:

Becky Spratford, RA for All
Kaite Stover, Kansas City Public Library
Rebecca Vnuk, LibraryReads

Tomorrow on the blog I will have my entire list of titles [11] with everything I said about them and a lot more. In only 10 minutes of speaking time, even I cannot talk fast enough to tell you everything I want to about these titles. Here on the blog though I will have a full mini review with my three words and linked readalikes. 

To tide over those of you who can’t be there in person, here is the post from last year’s Read ’N’ Rave. By the way, all of those are still excellent suggestions. Actually, they are even better than when I discusses them last year because they are all out now. The books I am talking about today, won’t be out for a few months.

Just because I am presenting in New Orleans today, however, doesn’t mean every single one of you can’t still listen to me today, no matter where you are. Recently I recorded a two part episode for Ladies of the Fright podcast.  Here is the direct link to the episode page.

While this interview was geared toward educating authors about how libraries work, we also spent a lot of time talking about the appeal of horror, my horror origin story, my life as a writer, and where the genre is headed.

There is much here for anyone who works with readers of any genre. We even talk about booktalking in general and I book talk a few titles- book talks you can feel free to borrow.

Again the episode’s page with show notes is here. I can’t wait to have time to listen myself.

See some of you at the Read ’N’ Rave in a bit, but see all of you back here tomorrow to begin my week of conference report posts.
