About Nancy Pearl
The New York Times calls Nancy Pearl “the talk of librarian circles”. Since the release of 2003’s best–selling Book Lust and the Librarian Action Figure modeled in her likeness, Pearl has become a rock star among readers and the tastemaker that people turn to when deciding what to read next. She is the author of Book Lust, More Book Lust, Book Crush, and Book Lust to Go. Her first novel, George & Lizzie, is an intimate story of new and past loves, the scars of childhood, and an imperfect marriage at its defining moment.
Pearl speaks about the pleasures of reading to literacy organizations and community groups throughout the world and hosts a monthly television show on the Seattle Channel, Book Lust with Nancy Pearl. Among her many honors and awards are the 2011 Librarian of the Year Award from Library Journal and the 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association.
This program is generously supported by the Port Angeles Friends of the Library.
