Women’s National Book Association-San Francisco Chapter presents:
New Ways to Read: eMaterials, Libraries, and the Digital Divide
Saturday, August 2nd, 2014, 2:00–4:00 pm
at Rockridge Branch Library, 5366 College Avenue, Oakland
Speaker: Sharon McKellar, Librarian
Are you curious to know how libraries add eBooks to their collections? Have you heard of OVERDRIVE? Do you wonder which readers are digital and which aren’t? Come to our kick-off meeting of the program year and find out! Mix and mingle after the talk, snacks provided. FREE to members and guests. Please RSVP at http://wnba-sfchapter.org/new-ways-read-ematerials-libraries-digital-divide/
Sharon McKellar, Oakland Public Librarian will speak about new ways to read, including eBooks, downloadable audiobooks, and online reading and will give insight into what types of books (genre, age range etc.) get more use digitally. She will also address impacts these new “reading technologies” have on libraries, librarians, and a population with uneven access to digital resources and will shed light on how libraries are facing these impacts, both good and bad. Following the talk there will be time for questions.
Sharon McKellar has been a librarian with the Oakland Public Library since 2003, serving as a children’s librarian, a branch manager, and currently as the Community Relations Librarian. She is a reader, a writer, and an excited member of the 2015 Caldecott Selection Committee.

Tomorrow, Saturday, July 14, 2012, noon to 2:00pm, while I (Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan) will be on the “Writers on Writing” panel at Oakland Public Library, Rockridge Branch, 5366 College Avenue, Oakland, CA with Kim McMillon, Yolande Barial, Joan Gelfand, Stephanie Dale, and Judith Cody . . .
and Joanna W. Biggar, author of That Paris Year, will be speaking in Sacramento, CA. While visiting Joanna’s blog, I found her post about another colleague – Cara Black! http://joannabiggar.org/2012/03/10/cara-black-and-my-own-paris-noir/
I met Joanna at Book Passage, Ferry Building, San Francisco on July 9, 2012 when I was interviewing Carol Sheldon, author of Mother Lode, who was being honored by Left Coast Writers.
Q: Who can be a member of SHE WRITES?
A: We welcome individuals who consider themselves writers! You don’t need to be a published, professional writer, but most of our members are, or aspire to become so. When you fill out your profile, please use a name rather than a business. We prefer first and last names, but we understand if there’s a good reason you need to use a pseudonym.
Men: We welcome men. Our reasoning is twofold: 1) legal2) philosophical. We would not want to be excluded from a site called HE WRITES because of our sex or gender.
While looking up Women On Writing, the annual conference held at Skyline College in San Bruno, CA, I came across Wild Writing Women.
Oh how I love being Coach Teresa!
I cheer for writers & readers (women and men, teens and children)!
Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan
Coach Teresa says: “I love helping writers build their platforms and published authors fortify theirs with individualized coaching.”
As coach and author of Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days: Attract Agents, Editors, Publishers, Readers, and Media Attention NOW, she advices: “Make your name synonymous with the issues you write about.”
Teresa has built her own platform happily; her novel Love Made of Heart and her short play Answer Me Now carry the theme closest to her heart: mother-daughter relationship.
Teresa LeYung-Ryan helps clients identify themes, universal archetypes, front-story and back-story in their manuscripts.
