What is a Book Talk?

A book talk is a short presentation about a book with the goal of convincing other people to read it. It is NOT a simple review or book report.  Rather, the goal of a book talk is to engage the listeners with a fun, exciting, and even suspenseful commercial for a particular book.

For me, a book talk is much more!  It is a performance – literally!  I want to “hook” listeners using magic tricks, storytelling, puppets, puzzles, interactive games and more.  While most book talks are usually about 2-3 minutes, my talks are a bit more.  In fact, you might call refer to the “talks” on this site as a “Book Talks – PLUS!”
