A Special Event You Won’t Want to Miss …

Nancy Pearl, America’s Librarian, Oct. 20, 7:00 pm

This is a joint event with the Hoffman Center for the Arts that you won’t want to miss.  Mark your calendar and plan to be at the Nehalem Community Recreation Center (NCRD) for a fun evening with Nancy Pearl, librarian-extraordinaire from Seattle.  April Baer, moderator of OPB’s program State of Wonder, will be interviewing Nancy and our audience will be part of the recorded program.

Nancy Pearl

In the 1990’s Nancy started a citywide book club called “If All Seattle Read The Same Book.” Nancy Pearl is a regular NPR contributor, and is known for her keen sense of humor.

She has also written several books, but is most known for Book Lust, a compilation of her favorite reads. The book is divided by categories such as Fathers and Daughters, First Novels, Shrinks and Shrinkees, Hanky Reads, Chick Lit, and Aging.

Tickets will be $25 each and, with Nancy’s reputation, we expect a really big turn out.  We’ll keep you updated on more details as we get closer to the event.
