From leading to reading, four of the women of the Seattle City Council and librarian extraordinaire Nancy Pearl weigh in at Civic Cocktail with host Joni Balter. What are the impacts of a female majority council? How do men and women differ when it comes to lawmaking? Then Book Lust host Nancy Pearl reveals the most common question asked of librarians, how she finds the time to consume so many books, the physical "risks" of reading (double tennis elbow!), and a little bit about the novel she's writing!
