Read, Share, Give, Enjoy -- Books for the Holidays: A Chat with Nancy Pearl

Aired on Friday, December 2nd.

On this installment of ST, we speak with Nancy Pearl, our longtime book reviewer. She's a Seattle-based bestselling author and retired librarian, and she used to work as a bookseller (decades ago) here in Tulsa. A tireless book advocate and literary critic -- and perhaps the only librarian ever to be fashioned and sold as an action figure -- Nancy can also be heard occasionally recommending books on NPR's Morning Edition. She talked with us about the following titles, all of which she thinks would make great gifts this holiday season:

Michael Chabon. "Moonglow"
Chris Cleave. "Everyone Brave Is Forgiven"
David France. "How to Survive a Plague"
Robert Glancy. "Please Do Not Disturb"
Robert Gottlieb. "Avid Reader"
Becky Masterman. "Fear the Darkness"
Ian McEwan. "Nutshell"
Bonny Becker. "Christmas Crocodile"
