An Evening With Nancy Pearl, America’s Librarian
Attention Readers, Writers and NPR Lovers!
The Chapel Hill Public Library will host a special evening with Nancy Pearl at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16. Renowned as “America’s Librarian,” Pearl comments regularly about books on National Public Radio and speaks throughout the world about the pleasures of reading. This will be one of only two stops Pearl will be making in the Triangle area.
At the library, she will talk about her evolution from reader to writer. Her emotionally riveting debut novel George & Lizzie, about an unlikely marriage at a crossroads, was published this fall to critical acclaim. She is also the author of the nonfiction Book Lust series, which features “recommended reading for every mood, moment, and reason.”
This special event is made possible by the Friends of the Chapel Hill Public Library. Flyleaf Books will have copies of Pearl’s books for sale. Please note that the library will be closed for staff development on Nov. 16 and will open only for this evening event.
