Limited Capacity seats available

Erotic fiction and erotica have traditionally had a small place in public library collections. However, the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey has brought attention and demand for these collections in a way we've never seen before. We will explore the differences between romance, erotic fiction, erotica, and pornography, and review and recommend popular authors and publishing houses. We will provide information and suggestions for professional and social media review sources, as well as other tools you can use for reader's advisory. Finally, we will explore what policies we should have in place to safeguard community standards, address any possible objections, and maintain our commitment to defending intellectual freedom.
