New Nancy Pearl Reviews

In the need of a pick-me-up? Listen to Nancy Pearl’s new show on KUOW (see link at the upper right of EarlyWord home page). Not only is her enthusiasm for reading contagious, so is her laugh at the beginning of the show. You’ll want to put it on a loop.

Nancy describes two very different books. The first is owned by only a few libraries. It sounds like something libraries should have, if only for staff development.
