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.

“The Diary Keepers: World War II in the Netherlands as Written by the People Who Lived Through It” by Nina Siegal shares the firsthand accounts of individuals whose identities ranged from Jewish victim to Nazi collaborator. Siegal says these personal histories illuminate the larger story of World War II, and she hopes they help readers understand how their own actions impact tomorrow's history.
