I know summer isn't even over, but we wanted you to get this into your
schedule...  :>)
Ever talk with a teen about a book and watch eyes glaze over in boredom?
Attend this FREE workshop and learn to create/present booktalks that
thrill and entice teens to read!  Cathy Schneider, from Multnomah Couty
Library's Books 2 U program and booktalker extraordinaire, will offer
tips and tricks of the booktalk.  You'll learn: 

*	How booktalks differ from summaries; 
*	3 ways to talk about fiction; 
*	How to talk up non-fiction; 
*	How to create great "hooks" for books;
*	Hear demonstration booktalks; and 
*	Practice your own.

Phew! All that in only 2 hours!  Then, stay for the networking!  After
lunch on your own in downtown Portland, join your teen service peers at
the quarterly OYAN membership meeting to network, share ideas, and plan
ahead.  Come with your great ideas of titles to include in the 2010 OYAN
Book Rave booklist.

Time: Workshop, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.; Membership Meeting, 1 - 4 p.m.
