Library Partnerships with Writers and Poets: Case Studies
Edited by Carol Smallwood and Vera Gubnitskaia
Foreword by Patti Gibbons
Libraries and writers have always had a close working relationship. Rapid advances in technology have not changed the nontechnical basis of that cooperation: author talks, book signings and readings are as popular as ever, as are workshops and festivals.
This collection of 29 new essays from nearly 50 contributors from across the United States presents a variety of projects, programs and services to help librarians establish relationships with the literary world, promote literature to the public and foster creativity in their communities.
