Video: Nancy Pearl recommends 11 books to Friends

Originally published May. 22, 2014

“I don’t lie about books,” said Nancy Pearl at the Friends of the Library appreciation event.

On May 8, 2014, more than 150 Friends of the Library members gathered at the Rosehill Community Center in Mukilteo to hear a compelling book talk by librarian, author and literary critic Nancy Pearl. The audience diligently took notes as Nancy revealed 11 titles on her recommended reading list that most people probably haven’t heard about yet.

Enjoy the video of Nancy’s presentation and share it with other Nancy Pearl fans.

It had been startling and disappointing to me to find out that story books had been written by people,
that books were not natural wonders, coming up of themselves like grass.
