A book talk is a short presentation about a book with the goal of convincing other people to read it. It’s not a formal book report or review. And, it’s more persuasive than expository—think sales and marketing. In a book talk, the goal is to engage the listeners and present a fun, exciting, and even suspenseful commercial for your book. A book talk could highlight the plot, like this example featuring the book Smile by Raina Telgemeir. It could focus on a character, like this talk on the book Matilda by Roald Dahl. Or, it could recreate a book’s mood to ignite readers’ curiosity. This workshop will prepare to the basics of the book talk - student interest inventories, determining reading levels, book selection and presentation. You can then teach your students how to do book talks by modeling the practice. Hand the reins to students by assigning them book talks in partners or as presentations!
