This is a wonderful SF genre training tool. I learned a lot and I have been researching all the speculative genres for a year now [details on that here].
Are you intimidated at the thought of helping science fiction readers? Whether your readers are fans of dystopian reads (like the Divergent series) or Afrofuturism works (like the Broken Earth novels), let NoveList and LibraryReads break down the best science fiction has to offer your readers—from alien invasions to weird science.
Join Stephen Sposato, manager of Content Curation at Chicago Public Library, and NoveList’s own Gillian Speace as they cover:
- Why science fiction is so popular
- How science fiction developed including classics, newcomers, and awards to know
- Subgenres and crossovers
- NoveList insider information on genre headings, themes, appeal terms, and more
Also included is a bonus 15-minute training on tips and where to access genre-related information.
