Reading Nonfiction: Different Demands of Readers

rnf-bobkylene

If you’ve been eagerly anticipating Kylene Beers and Bob Probst's nonfiction follow-up to Notice & Note, the wait is almost over! Reading Nonfiction: Notice & Note Stances, Signposts, and Strategies will publish this autumn, and you can preorder now. In today's blog, Bob explains how nonfiction and fiction make different demands of the reader. The video is below.

Fiction invites you into a world the writer has imagined and invented. Nonfiction on the other hand intrudes into your world and purports to tell you something about it. Watch Bob and Kylene below.
