Virtual Princeton Public Library

Librarian and travel writer Margaret Montet presents on using research, anecdotes and more as "charms" to enhance the chain of your narrative and add reader interest.

Most writers are able to narrate a linear story, but the trick to adding reader interest is weaving in relevant memoir, research, conversation and anecdotes. Think of the narrative as a bracelet and these additions as its charms. By examining examples from classic travel literature, writing from prompts and identifying sources of reliable information, participants will practice integrating new threads into the fabric of their narrative. Presenter Margaret Montet, a librarian of 24 years and a travel writer, will share some tips for efficient online and print research using library resources. She is the author of the forthcoming "Nerd Traveler," a collection of travel essays.
