StudioTulsa Book Critic Nancy Pearl Names Some Terrific Books to Give (or Request!) for the Holidays
Today's ST is a replay of a show from two weeks ago, which was preempted by a presidential press conference. For this edition of our program, we check in with our longtime book reviewer, Nancy Pearl, for a few page-turning gift suggestions. (With the holidays fast upon us, it's entirely worth pointing out that one can never really go wrong with a good book....) A well-known librarian, now retired, who began appearing on our show back when she lived in Tulsa -- in the early 1990s -- Nancy is also a bestselling author, literary critic, and book editor. She's also a former Executive Director of the Washington Center for the Book in the Seattle Public Library, and she can sometimes be heard talking about books on NPR's Morning Edition. You can hear our discussion with Nancy -- and view her full list of suggestions -- at this link.
