Why are book reviews so important? Where should readers post them in support of writers and books they want to champion? What is the best way to write a review? What should a book review say and how should it say it? How do reviews posted by readers compare to reviews published in newspapers, magazines, and journals? How does someone become a professional book reviewer?

About Our Presenter:
A lifelong reader and advocate for writers and books, Annie McDonnell is a graduate of High Point University (NC). In 2006, she entered a contest with Elle Magazine and become a book reviewer for the magazine. When Elle stopped running book reviews, Annie moved to blogging and eventually began the Write Review. An entire community was born. Annie writes book reviews, beta reads, blurbs books, runs a book club, interviews authors, and hosts fun, interactive events to promote literacy.
In recognition of her many efforts, Annie was awarded the 2021 Doug Marlette Award for Literacy Leadership, a lifetime achievement award presented by the Pulpwood Queens, the largest book club in the U.S. In February 2021, the Annie McDonnell Book Award was announced, honoring her dedication to the literary community and her courage and strength in battling a rare illness. Annie lives in Mastic, NY, with her husband, three beautiful dogs and five lovely cats. She also volunteers at One Love Dog Rescue and supports Operation Paperback and Children’s Literacy.
