Literary Speed Networking
Book List Compiled from the June 13th Gathering
A lively, intergenerational group of men and women gathered to discuss everything from science fiction and self-help books, to spy novels and current events. Similar to speed dating, participants sat down in pairs and had four minutes to talk about whatever they wished, with a list of icebreaker questions on hand, just in case. When the four minutes were up, everyone switched seats and started another conversation.
An hour later, people were raving about the new authors, titles, genres, formats, blogs, tv shows, and movies they had learned about in their various conversations. The best part of all? No book reports, quiz questions or pre-reading necessary! All the participants did was show up prepared to talk about what they like to read, whether it be books, blogs, newspapers or magazines.
If this sounds good to you, keep an eye out for the Fall Literary Speed Networking Event. Readers of all ages, levels, and interests are welcome.
