Holiday Gift Ideas for Book Lovers: A Chat with Nancy Pearl

nancy-pearl-picture.jpg
Aired on Tuesday, December 18th.

Nancy Pearl is our guest on ST. An editor, novelist, literary critic, retired librarian, and internationally acclaimed reading and literacy advocate, Pearl used to live and work in Tulsa -- way back in the day -- and that's when she started appearing occasionally on our radio show. Pearl returns today (by phone) to share several bookish gift-giving ideas. Here is her list: Sam Anderson, "Boom Town" / Paul Auster, "4321" / Joanna Cannon, "The Trouble with Sheep and Goats" / Esi Edugyan, "Washington Black" / Jane Gardam, "A Long Way from Verona" / Sara Gran, "Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead" / Andrew Sean Greer, "Less" / Raymond Chandler (Edited by Owen Hill), "The Annotated Big Sleep" / Emma Hooper, "Our Homesick Songs" / Lydia Kiesling, "The Golden State" / Susan Orlean, "The Library Book."
