Reader's Advisory - Award Winners

Genre Study: Award Winners

We all watch for the announcements of the Man Booker Prize, Pulitzer Prize, and National Book Awards--many readers are anxious to read whatever gets a medal, and we are always ready to serve them. How can we use these awards to do RA, once the holds list is empty? What do award-winning books have in common? If a reader likes the 2016 Pulitzer Prize winner for Fiction, will they like the 2015 and 2014 ones as well? In this genre study, we'll explore what different high-profile awards mean, and how to use awards lists to improve our readers' advisory. A suggested reading list will be provided in advance.           

   

NOTE: This meeting is at the Harry Bennett Branch of the Ferguson Library, NOT the main branch downtown.
