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.

Meg Waite Clayton took a leap, leaving a busy career in law to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a writer. She's written eight novels since 2002. Her recent books could be categorized as historical fiction, not wholly based on history but real people and events sprinkled with invented characters. Her latest, "The Postmistress of Paris," is a layered story of suspense, romance, and the beauty of art, inspired by the true story of a woman who helped to smuggle artists and intellectuals out of German-occupied France.
