misc_none 9:45 AM  -  12:00 PM Northeast MA Readers' Advisory Round Table [Reading] Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Leane M Ellis   781-246-6334   ellis@noblenet.org
   

The Northeastern Readers' Advisory Round Table reads the same Subject in both Nonfiction & Fiction over the summer to be discussed in September.

We completed a three-part arc in Historical Non-Fiction and top it off by reading Historical Fiction/Nonfiction duo on the same topic.

The Benchmarks: Everyone reads Janet Wallach’s Desert Queen: The Extraordinary Life of Gertrude Bell, Advisor to Kings, Ally of Lawrence of Arabia. (1997) OR Georgina Howell’s Queen of the Desert, Shaper of Nations (2008) NONFICTION BIOGRAPHY and Mary Doria Russell’s Dreamers of the Day. HISTORICAL FICTION.

Please read 2nd titles on the same Subject in both Nonfiction & Fiction. Suggested List on Blog.

Appeal to be read for September 2017 meeting: Focus on all the appeal factors, but really think about frame: place, time, and tone and the appeal differences between nonfiction and fiction.

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).

!ANNOUNCEMENT: On November 28, 2017,  we will be having a Planning/Strategy meeting instead of our usual genre study discussion. We have a schedule through 2018 and it is time to discuss what we need from this group individually and collectively.  Please come to this meeting whether you are a founding member, longtime or sometime attendee, or brand-new participant.  Help us shape the future of our RA studies.  We will be meeting at Methuen’s Nevins Memorial Library from 10:00am to 12Noon.  We will also do an RA exercise which will be explained at the September 26th meeting in Reading. Sign up will be by this MLS CE Calendar.

The Library Program Planners Group meets quarterly to share programming ideas for adults.  At each meeting, after introductions, we simply go around the room and discuss two successful programs  recently held at our libraries.  Within a week of the meeting, we  email details of all the programs we've held in the past three months to the group's secretary, who distributes the list to the group.   

While the group consists mainly of librarians from MVLC, NOBLE and southern New Hampshire, membership is open to all.  Even if you can't attend the meetings, you can still contribute to and benefit from the group's list-serv and blog, both very helpful resources when program planning.  The blog, for example, has more than 1,000 reviews, fee information and contact information for authors, speakers and performers.

No registration is required to attend the meetings, but you must be a member of the group.  Contact group facilitator Robert Hayes (rhayes@tewksburypl.org) to join the group.

Welcome to the Western Region Program Planners group.

We meet quarterly throughout the year to discuss and share information about programming for libraries in the western region. The first 90 minutes are spent discussing programs, with the last 30 minutes focused on a topic related to programming. This group is primarily for sharing adult programming ideas, but membership is open to all interested. 

The goal of this group is to discuss and present information about program ideas, content, presenters, and costs. The group aims to be a sounding board and information finding tool for library programmers. Please bring 2 - 3 "examples" of successful programs that you’ve held in the previous 3 months at your library. An evaluation form, to be completed for each program, will be sent out a week before the meeting. 

If you like access to our private blog or have any questions, please reach out to Lyndsay Johnson - lyjohnson@cwmars.org or Wendy McAnanama - mcananama@agawamlibrary.org.

Registration will be available in September 2017.
