Who, you ask, is Nancy Pearl? And why are you taking her name in vain?
Nancy Pearl, folks, is the illustrious librarian, lusty author of Book Lust, official NPR commentator on things literary, and host of the monthly television program Book Lust with Nancy Pearl on the Seattle Channel.
AND - as if all that weren't enough - the inspiration for her very own action figure, with patented shushing action!!!
And why, you may ask, am I so excited about Nancy Pearl (or, more precisely, her action figure)?
My awesome writing group - Tina, Janet, Peggy, Judy, Katherine, and Dawn - have made me the current keeper of the Nancy Pearl action figure!!!! Woohoo!! It may not seem like much, but Nancy is our Oscar, baby. I put her on my mantle to remind me to shhhh - oh, and to honor the book - every time I see her.
So SHHHHHH!! Nancy Pearl is on your case!
