Big Ideas Book Discussion (August 2020 - Stories that Stick)

Begins 08/14/2020
Available capacity: 73

Join us in August for the next installment of our regular series: "Big Ideas Book Discussion".  For this session, we will be reading Stories That Stick: How Stories Can Captivate Customers, Influence Audiences, and Transform Your Business (c2019) by Kindra Hall. From Amazon: “…Telling these stories well is a simple, accessible skill that anyone can develop. Hall presents storytelling as the underutilized talent that separates the good from the best in business. She offers specific, actionable steps that readers can take to find, craft, and leverage the stories they already have and simply aren’t telling…”

In Big Ideas Book Discussions, State Library staff and guest stars facilitate discussions using books outside of library management, but with plenty of application to library management. Choosing books on leadership, civic engagement, presentation skills, etc. we’ll connect those ideas with public library service. In addition to a great assortment of non-fiction titles there are other spin-off benefits of Big Ideas:

  • titles help with collection development for participating libraries
  • titles are good choices for local book discussion groups
  • this program serves as another model for how to facilitate local book discussions

We encourage participants to purchase books used throughout the Big Ideas series for your own collections. And join us for the next big read: Stories That Stick.
