  • Description

Young adults may be the toughest audience on Earth. Can librarians successfully use booktalks with teenagers who have grown up with the Internet, digital TV, and CD-Walkmans? The answer is yes! Noted booktalker Jennifer Bromann shows you how in this new manual with step-by-step guidance, plus a collection of 50 booktalks that work. Practical chapters discuss what teens want; how booktalkers can choose the right books (and which ones to avoid); booktalking basics; writing booktalks (including hints for preparing a booktalk when you don't have time to read all the books). Sample booktalks cover 10 genres: science fiction, realistic fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, nonfiction, short books, horror, mystery, humor, and popular books of temporary - but immediate - interest.
