Out of the Shadows: Taking the "Scary" out of Horror Readers' Advisory
RA in a Day is a one-day conference that brings some of the best readers’ advisory advocates together to share their knowledge and expertise on meeting the needs of adult readers. During the day, participants will learn about the latest RA trends and look at how to best serve those who visit our libraries every day, either in-person or virtually.

The 2019 program for RA in a Day will focus on the history of and current trends in the Horror genre. All of the sessions will share tips and techniques aimed at increasing your knowledge of the genre and raising your comfort level in talking to patrons about both specific books and trends in this genre.
