She’ll also provide a downloadable handout of the recommendations so you can share with your patrons. Combine Nancy’s irrepressible charm and undeniable knowledge, and you’ll have an hour-long webinar of fun and great ideas.
Who Should Attend
Library staff specializing in readers’ advisory as well as anyone looking for great gift ideas.
The New York Times calls Nancy Pearl “the talk of librarian circles.” Nancy speaks to library and community groups across the country and she regularly recommends books on NPR’s Morning Edition, as well as on many public radio station programs. She entertains and informs standing-room only crowds, and she’s even had a librarian action figure modeled in her likeness. A winner of the 2004 Women’s National Book Association Award, Nancy is also the author of
