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.

Julianna Baggott joins Book Lust to talk about her wonderfully wacky new collection of short stories, "I'd Really Prefer Not to Be Here with You," a little bit sci-fi, a little bit horror, and a lot of human nature, all set in the not-so-distant and slightly dystopian future. Host Nancy Pearl asks Julianna about her writing process, and they trade favorite short story writers. Julianna explains how learning about screenwriting can make anyone a better writer.
