The author of six children's books, one nonfiction book for adults, and two romantic adventure novels for adults due out in 2007, Catherine would rather write than wrangle sheep, but is proud she can do both. She shares her life with between fifty and one hundred sheep, three llamas, two dogs, two cats, and lots of ducks and chickens. Learn more about her farm at www.risingmoonfarm.com. She has a B.A. in Economics and Spanish, and a M.S. in Economics, neither of which she has used for years. She has held an impressive array of odd jobs, such as working in bookstores, packing cheese and sausage gift boxes, weeding on an organic vegetable farm, and working an assembly line packing boxes of Christmas decorations. For many years she taught writing for the Institute of Children's Literature, then worked as a freelance editor. She currently gives writing workshops, volunteers on the local library board, does chores on the farm, is afraid of geese, and wears an Elvis watch. --she also writes children's books and adult fiction. Reader’s Advisory for Seniors is an emerging area for many of us working the reference desk. RART has assembled a panel of speakers to start a discussion on ways to assist this growing segment of our library users. Janet Kleckner, Outreach Librarian with Anoka County Library, will be sharing her experiences and giving us a few tips. Cindy Gardener, a nurse with Boutwell’s Landing senior care facility, will enlighten us on various ways our most senior population is gaining access to books and information. Liz Geatke, Corporate Sales Representative for Borders Books Stores, will speak to us on the commercial side of serving seniors. 2007 Readers’ Advisory Spring Retreat Registration Name:___________________________ Library:_____________________ Address:_____________________________ E-mail:_________________________ City/State/Zip:___________________________ Phone Number:_______________ Note: The registration includes parking, morning refreshments, and lunch.
