Join us for the launch of local rock star librarian Nancy Pearl’s debut novel George and Lizzie, an emotionally riveting story about an unlikely marriage at a crossroads.

With pitch-perfect prose and compassion and humor to spare, George and Lizzie is an intimate story of new and past loves, the scars of childhood, and an imperfect marriage at its defining moments.

Nancy Pearl is known as “America’s Librarian.” She speaks about the pleasures of reading at library conferences, to literacy organizations and community groups throughout the world and comments on books regularly on KUOW FM in Seattle, as well as KWGS in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Wisconsin Public Radio. Born and raised in Detroit, she received her master’s degree in library science in 1967 from the University of Michigan. She also received an MA in history from Oklahoma State University in 1977. Among her many honors and awards are the 2011 Librarian of the Year Award from Library Journal; and the 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association. She also hosts a monthly television show, «Book Lust with Nancy Pearl.»

Nancy Pearl will appear in conversation with Katy Sewall. Katy Sewall is a radio producer and host. She worked for 11 years at KUOW Public Radio, NPR Seattle, as Lead Producer (and occasional host) of Weekday with Steve Scher. She has also worked with RadioLab and A Prairie Home Companion. She loves and studies the Golden Age of Radio. Search out the Radio Retrospective, her regular radio feature on how the Golden Age of radio drama influenced the media of today.

This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, author series sponsor Gary Kunis, and media sponsor The Seattle Times and presented in partnership with Town Hall and University Book Store. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
