As the popularity of non-fiction reading for pleasure continues to grow, librarians have a great opportunity to grow their reader’s advisory skills. What draws patrons to non-fiction? And what do they want to read next? Based on an annual program of the same name for fiction at Book Expo America, The Great Non-Fiction Readalike: If You Like This, You’ll LOVE That!, this panel of five librarians will cover major trends in popular non-fiction publishing, recommending titles of current interest and with pre-publication buzz -- and what off your back list will satisfy your patrons while they’re on hold.
