Aired on Tuesday, December 10th.

On this edition of StudioTulsa, our old pal (and longtime book reviewer, and former Tulsan) Nancy "America's Librarian" Pearl returns with --- just in time for the holidays --- another list of outstanding literary recommendations. Whether you're keen on ficton or non-fiction, a YA novel or a thriller, a work of history or one of satire, Nancy has just the book you're looking for. . . . Here's the rundown of titles/authors that she shares with us on today's program:

Scott Anderson, "Lawrence in Arabia"

Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian, "The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football"

Jon Cohen, "The Man in the Window"

Nicholas Dawidoff, "Collision Low Crossers: A Year Inside the Turbulent World of NFL Football"

Sheri Fink, "Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital"

Jane Gardam, "A Long Way from Verona"

Adrian McKinty, "The Cold, Cold Ground"

Bob Shacochis, "The Woman Who Lost Her Soul"

Jincy Willett, "Amy Falls Down"

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
