Some Reading Recommendations from Nancy Pearl, Our Longtime Book Reviewer

Apr 8, 2021

Our guest is Nancy Pearl, the well-known librarian, bestselling author, and former executive director of the Washington Center for the Book at the Seattle Public Library. She's also a longtime book reviewer for KWGS-FM / Public Radio Tulsa, as she used to live and work in Tulsa, decades ago, before relocating to Washington State. We're very pleased to welcome Nancy back to StudioTulsa; she joins us to recommend several books she's been particularly enjoying over the past (often quite solitary) year or so. Here's the list of titles that she tells us about: Scott Anderson, The Quiet Americans: 4 C.I.A. Spies at the Dawn of the Cold War -- A Tragedy in 3 Acts. Ausma Khan, The Unquiet Dead. Mary Morris, All the Way to the Tigers. Emily Nemens, The Cactus League. Bridget Quinn, She Votes: How U.S Women Won Suffrage, and What Happened Next. Gertrude Stein, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. Simon Stephenson, Set My Heart to Five. Natalie Zina Walschots, Hench. Eley Williams, Liar's Dictionary.
