The Power of Booktalking. University of Wisconsin-Madison, SLIS, Continuing Education Services. Neal-Schuman, 2009. DVD. ISBN: 9781555706838

>From the description:  "With this groundbreaking new DVD, all you need is one hour to learn the gamut of approaches, styles and skills that make booktalking one of the most powerful techniques in promoting reading across all ages. Both beginning and experienced librarians will benefit from this dynamic set of real-life presentations, and the diverse group of speakers makes it easy for you to find and develop a personal style that is both comfortable for you and effective for your audience. The DVD also comes with companion files, including PDFs with tips and strategies, lists of related books, and a complete Webliography."

I previewed half of the segments, and my biggest impression is that even those without a flair for drama can give good booktalks.  A variety of people give demonstrations, including school librarians at the elementary, middle, and high school levels and a teen librarian from a public library.
