Should a title of a book be italicized when it is following a quoted paragraph from the book, for the purpose of introducing an article? In other words this is not running text nor is it a quotation set off within the text; rather, it appears as an extract before the beginning of the article. Following the extract is an en dash, the author’s last name, a comma, and then the book title. None of which are currently italicized. I don’t think the author’s name should be italicized, but should the book title? I can’t find a rule for this in my references. (And while I’m asking, should it be an en dash before the author’s name? or em dash?). Thanks for your help!
Daniel Gould, Director of Health Programs for FTM Alliance of Los Angeles, coordinated a program recently on Accessing Health Care. He commented, “Accessing quality medical care is such a critical issue for the trans community. From the research we've done, we know that people's ability to advocate for themselves can make a huge difference in their health. We believe in empowering our community by teaching people their rights and helping them learn ways that they can be effective in working with medical providers. It has been incredibly rewarding to work on this project.”
I love all of Chevy Stevens. She’s from Vancouver Island, written 4 books. Can’t wait to read them so even buy hard cover. First was Still Missing which got me hooked. Last was Those Girls had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen to those girls. I’m a murder mystery lover. Also love Chelsea Cain from Portland. Nicci French from England a husband and wife team. I like books that are fast paced and don’t spend a lot of time on description. I want them to cut to the chase. These authors do that. Enjoy!!!
