For the Love of Reference
I have been invited by the Reference & User Services Association (RUSA), a division of the American Library Association, to speak during their President’s Program at the ALA’s Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.
On Monday, June 28, I will do in-booth signings in the morning and discuss the research I do for my novels at 1:30pm.
RUSA: President’s Program: For the Love of Reference
Reference and Readers’ Advisory work are among the most engaging specialties in librarianship. They inspire great devotion among their practitioners and fans. Beyond those practitioners, researchers who dig for information as part of their job find many of the same satisfactions as reference librarians. We want to explore the twin appeals of information discovery and serving users that drive the devotion to reference and readers’ advisory work. Nancy Pearl will speak about her love of working with readers, and Peter Bromberg will talk about his love of reference and its future. New York Times best-selling thriller author Joseph Finder will share his experiences as an information digger in researching for his work, including VANISHED and KILLER INSTINCT.
