Northeast MA Readers' Advisory Round Table [Tewksbury]
Tewksbury Public Library, Tuesday, May 24 at 10:45am
The Northeastern Readers' Advisory Round Table's Adrenaline Fiction Genre: Psychological Suspense: Complicated Ladies
Benchmark: Everyone Reads Mary Kubica's The Good Girl.
This is the third of a three-meeting arc covering Adrenaline Fiction. In January 2016 we talked about Lone Wolves in Suspense, in March 2016 Spy Thrillers, and in May 2016 we are talking about Psychological Suspense. The list of books and the notes on what we learned in our discussions can be found on our blog.
Please read a 2nd title in the Adrenaline Fiction Genre: Psychological Suspense: Complicated Ladies--look on the RA RT blog: for a list of suggested titles and some supporting materials.
Appeal to be read for May meeting: ***Focus on all the appeal factors, but really think about tone, pacing, and character.
Meeting every other month, the NE RA RT reads from one genre--and then discusses the appeal of that genre with each other emphasizing the building of a skill set of appeal categories and familiarity of genre particulars. They cover a different genre every meeting, allowing each of the participants to be introduced to the discipline of reading for appeal, as well as an initiation to broad genre categories. Everyone participating will be able to share analysis of titles and authors in unfamiliar genres that will stretch their capicity as readers' advisors.  The discussion leaders are Leane Ellis (ellis@noblenet.org) and Nanci Milone Hill (nhill@mvlc.org).
