UPDATE: Roz has agreed to reschedule! 

We're delighted to announce that we have rescheduled this wonderful webinar with Roz Reisner for Wednesday, December 10 at 10 AM. Roz will be updating her presentation with some looks ahead to early 2015. If you registered for this webinar over the summer, you'll receive an e-mail asking if you'd like to hold your place. If you need to cancel, we will take care of that for you. 

Registration for all previously un-registered LibraryLinkNJ member library staff will open on Monday, November 10 at 9 AM. Please see below for details.


Tracking popular genre authors 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 readers and “best” lists? Join Roz Reisner to learn about the best of the recent and forthcoming midlist literary fiction from the big publishing houses and the best small literary presses, so you’ll be able to suggest titles to your patrons. We’ll also share resources for keeping up with new titles.

Learning Objectives:

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

  • Recommend current and forthcoming literary fiction to your Readers’ Advisory patrons;
  • Identify and use print and online resources for staying abreast of new and upcoming titles.
  • Learn which small presses are publishing interesting, award-winning, literary fiction.

This 90-minute webinar will include a 60-minute presentation and 30 minutes for Q&A, as well as an interactive portion about resources and keeping up with new and forthcoming titles.
