Books are this Pearl's oyster
Nancy Pearl

Nancy Pearl is a librarian, book reviewer, teacher and author.

This Wednesday, Nov. 8, Pearl will wear two of those hats when she takes the stage at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts (WICA) not once, but twice in events hosted by the Friends of the Langley Library.

At 11 a.m., Pearl the reviewer will share her list of favorite books of the year. Pearl and her reviews and lists are well-known from appearances on public radio and her books “Book Lust: Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment and Reason,” “More Book Lust,” “Book Lust to Go” and “Book Crush,” which included recommendations for children and teens.

This is Pearl’s 20th anniversary of her first book talks at WICA. In honor of the occasion, Pearl will include favorite lists and recommendations from years past.

At 7:30 p.m., Pearl will be back on the WICA stage to talk about her own and very first novel, “George & Lizzie.” This benefit book reading and signing will include anecdotes about her own journey into fiction. Now on the receiving end of reviews, Sno-Isle Libraries’ reaction by KatC includes, “This book surprised me and will stick with me. This story will appeal to anyone who is interested in human behavior, …. George & Lizzie ticked off all the boxes for me.”

Tickets are required with proceeds to benefit the Friends of Langley Library and WICA.

The Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, is at 565 Camano Ave, Langley.
