A SWON Webinar presented by Leigh K. Mauer, Kenton County Public Library

There's no denying it. Street Lit is popular. Some people read it because they feel it relates to their own life and struggles. Others because the gritty, sexual, violent world holds a dark fascination and these books offer a safe way to experience it. Does your library carry street lit (urban fiction) in its collection? Are you interested in starting or expanding your current offerings? Or do you just want to learn more about this controversial genre and how to talk about it with patrons?

In a one hour webinar Leigh K. Mauer, Readers' Advisory Librarian at the Kenton County Public Library will discuss the appeal of street lit and what makes it so compelling to read; its growth and current popularity; and share useful, reliable collection development resources.

Leigh would like to hear from you during the webinar – questions, ideas and tips welcome!

Register here to join Leigh online on Thursday May 22th at 10am.
