Our colleagues at the Massachusetts Library System extend the invitation to NN/LM NER network members to participate in their 5in15 booktalk program. MLS is particularly interested in booktalks on health and science topics that provide recommendations from multiple perspectives.
[From the Massachusetts Library System]
Have you read five books?
Can you talk about them?
And can you do it in 15 minutes?
We seek well spoken readers to help us create 15 minute booktalks,
covering five titles. Each talk should cover three new titles and two
readalike or backlist titles. Each booktalk should revolve around one
• Specific genre favorites
• Best leading men/women
• Beach reads
• Holiday hits
Talks are recorded with GoToWebinar for audio and screencast capture. We will provide a slide template. You fill in the Title, speaker’s slide (with your name, title, and affiliation) and a slide for each book. Book slides should include:
• Cover image
• Release Date
We’ll schedule one hour to meet online. During that time, you deliver your
crafted 15 minute delivery of 5in15. The MLS Tech Team will edit the
recordings and extract the audio. On the fifth day of the intended month,
your 5in15 will be shared with the MLS membership as both a video and
5 in 15
