Invitation to Book Group Program at St. Louis Public Library

I received an email from Jennifer Ohzourk, the new Senior Subject Specialist at St. Louis Public Library's Center for the Reader. She encouraged me to share the information and an invitation for any who might be interested in attending their upcoming program.

  • On Wednesday, September 23rd at 9:00 a.m., Kaite Stover will be presenting Care and Feeding of Book Groups: Maintaining, Sustaining and Rejuvenating. At this session, learn a little history of the book group, how to make good book selections, how to formulate discussion topics (especially when none can be found online), good internet resources for book group leaders, and how to handle difficult book group members. Share ideas for making a book discussion special, titles that were a hit, and titles that were not. Come prepared to talk about your book club experiences and get ideas for creating new ones.
  • Kaite Stover is the Director of Readers’ Services for the Kansas City Public Library. She is the co-editor of The Readers’ Advisory Handbook (2010) with Jessica E. Moyer, and currently writes the "He Reads, She Reads" column for Booklist with David Wright and "Under the Radar" for Public Libraries with Jessica E. Moyer. Additionally, she is a regular blogger for Booklist's "Book Group Buzz" blog.
  • The program will be held from 9:00 am – 11:00 am in the Central Library’s Auditorium. Registration is required for the event.
