About Book Lust with Nancy Pearl

Seattle's own "action figure librarian," best-selling author, and literary critic Nancy Pearl sits down each month with authors, poets, and other literary figures for conversations about books, reading, and the process and art of writing. There's no one better qualified than Nancy, who brings an informed reader's perspective to lively conversation and in-depth dialogs about all things literary.

Nancy Pearl, author of the best-selling "Book Lust" series, creator of the internationally recognized program "If All of Seattle Read the Same Book" (which became "Seattle Reads"), and model for the world-famous Archee McPhee "Librarian Action Figure," is host of Book Lust with Nancy Pearl on the Seattle Channel.

Author Juliet Grames joins Nancy Pearl to discuss her recent book, how she balances writing alongside editing crime fiction at Soho Press, and trends in the literary world. Her debut novel, "The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna," is the fictional story of two feuding sisters told over a lifetime between Southern Italy and Connecticut. She talks about her Italian grandmother, the inspiration behind Stella Fortuna, who actually had eight near-death experiences. Grames was inspired by immigration stories and the strength and bravery of women of her grandmother's generation.
