We are excited to announce our 24th Tzavta Dinner Salon with special guest & famous librarian Nancy Pearl! The evening will be moderated by Glenn Dixon.

Nancy Pearl is “America’s librarian.” She regularly speaks about the value of reading at libraries and library conferences, and for literacy organizations and community groups. Nancy can be found on KUOW in Seattle, KWGS in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin Public Radio talking about books and reading. Her monthly television show, Book Lust with Nancy Pearl, on the Seattle Channel features interviews with authors, poets, and other literary figures.

Nancy is the creator of the internationally recognized program If All of Seattle Read the Same Book, and was the inspiration for the Archee McPhee "Librarian Action Figure". If the library world has a rock star - Nancy Pearl is it.
