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.

Dan Berger's nonfiction book, "Stayed on Freedom: The Long History of Black Power through One Family's Journey," closely follows a formerly married (still friends) couple through decades on the frontlines of the Black Power movement. Berger says this book documents the couple through the intersection of personal and public, and tells the story of the movement from a new perspective. One only made possible by a decades-long relationship with its subjects.
