A former librarian, she is the creator of the first community-wide reading program back in 1998, which led the <strong>Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County</strong> to undertake their <a href="http://www.cincinnatilibrary.org/samepage"><strong>On the Same Page</strong></a> effort. As part of the wrap-up to this year’s <strong>On the Same Page</strong>, <strong>Nancy Pearl</strong> will appear via Skype at the downtown branch of the library on Saturday, March 23 at 2:00pm. But first, she joins Mark Perzel by phone to talk about the origins of community reading programs, her lifelong love of books, and her incredibly popular Librarian Action figure.</p><p></p><p> Fri, 15 Mar 2013 05:31:25 +0000 Mark Perzel 10252 at http://wvxu.org Nationally-known librarian Nancy Pearl
