October 10 meeting 7-9 p.m. Library & Archives

Rapid Reads books are a growing phenomenon both in the adult and young adult market. Writers as diverse as Minnette Walters, Alexander McCall Smith, Terry Jones, and Karen Slaughter, have delivered their own mini-masterpieces.

Rapid Reads or Quick Reads books are geared toward reluctant readers whether adult or young adult. Though the popularity goes beyond those who ‘hate to read’. These short novels can be found in the classroom, libraries, even prisons. Come out for October’s meeting where novelists and CCW members Brenda Chapman, Barbara Fradkin, and Jeff Ross will speak about the Rapid Reads market in Canada, their experiences writing in this format, and the publishing possibilities.
