Descriptions

Tracking popular genre authors in the adult market is easy—the bestseller list is filled with thrillers, mysteries, fantasies, and paranormal novels—but what about all that great  literary fiction, the mainstay of so many of our adult readers and “best” lists? Join Roz Reisner to learn about the best of the new and forthcoming midlist literary fiction, so you’ll be able to suggest titles to your patrons. We’ll also share resources for keeping up with new titles. Roz's 60-minute presentation will be followed by 30 minutes of interactive discussion about resources and keeping up with new and forthcoming titles.

After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Recommend current and forthcoming literary fiction to your readers and book groups;
  • Identify and use print and online resources for staying abreast of new and upcoming titles.
