The mission of the NE MA RA Genre Study is to provide an Introduction to Genre Study, 101
The mission of the NE MA RA Genre Study is to provide an Introduction to Genre Study, 101. Meeting five times a year, we shall all read from one genre—and then discuss the appeal of that genre with each other emphasizing the building of a skill set of appeal categories and familiarity of genre particulars. We shall cover a different genre every meeting, allowing each of us to be introduced to the discipline of reading for appeal, as well as an initiation to broad and more specific genre categories. Everyone participating will be able to share analysis of titles and authors in unfamiliar genres that will stretch their capacity as Readers’ Advisors. Your Discussion Leader is Leane Ellis, Readers’ Advisory Librarian & Consultant (firstname.lastname@example.org), formerly from the Lucius Beebe Library in Wakefield . To find out what we are currently studying, check out the calendar to the right–and use the drop-down menu to find the genre and the assignment.
Want to join our Google Group? Email Leane at email@example.com and she will send you an invitation to join–it is not a high traffic site but resources and RA interests are posted and discussed among group members.
