Nationally-known librarian Nancy Pearl

You may have heard Nancy Pearl during one of her appearances on NPR’s Morning Edition where she opines about all things books. A former librarian, she is the creator of the first community-wide reading program back in 1998, which led the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County to undertake their On the Same Page effort. As part of the wrap-up to this year’s On the Same Page, Nancy Pearl 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.
