EW does RA
Posted by: Kaite Stover
In the latest print issue of Entertainment Weekly 9/2/11 , you will find a great example of readers’ advisory on the Letters page.
EW staff writer Kevin Sullivan took it a little further by drawing parallels between character, setting, time period, and story between Like One of the Family and The Help. His annotation is spot on, including a piece of tragic humor that perfectly illustrates how the employer views her employee.
I like doing readers’ advisory at my job. I even like doing it outside my job. But I like reader’s advisory best when I see readers doing it for each other. That’s how I know we’re all doing a good job at readers’ advisory.
Kudos to Kevin, Jason of Pasadena, and Courtney of Silver Spring, MD.
