Do you prefer stories based upon fact or those created from their authors’ imaginations? It seems that currently authors of nonfiction narratives are using similar elements as fiction writers, that is, fast-paced plot lines, well-developed characters and strong themes to popularize their books and to make them more appealing for a general audience. (No longer is narrative nonfiction composed in the tedious, text-book driven style of the OLDE DAYS!)
To illustrate this exciting,new trend, the Readers Services Staff has created two displays, one for August and the other for September; August’s is Fiction for Nonfiction Readers and September’s will be Nonfiction for Fiction Readers. So stop by the Readers Services Desk and while you’re there, be sure to check out a book about China and or the Olympics from our August Center Display…READING MAP ~ CHINA!
Book lists are available online or at the Readers Services Desk. As always we would love to hear your comments .
