It’s that time of year again! RA in a Half Day: Readers’ Advisory Thrills and Chills! is on Wednesday, October 30 from 9-1 at Vancouver Public Library. To recap the glory of last year’s session, check out this blog post. 

Are you spooked by self-help and psyched about horror? Are you clueless about adult graphic novels and curious about noir? How much do you know about chick lit? What the heck is “New Adult”?

The BCLA Readers’ Advisory Interest Group invites you to a workshop to help you improve and share your knowledge across the genres by learning about key authors, sub-genres, classic titles and interesting new trends.

The workshop will kick off with keynote speaker David Wright from Seattle Public Library, who will talk about innovation, inspiration, and collaboration in readers’ advisory services. Our closing keynote is Max Wyman, who will talk about the impact of libraries and reading for pleasure.
