3rd Annual Nancy Pearl Presents: Books That Make Great Gifts
A PLA member-exclusive webinar!
PLA is very excited to offer its members a free webinar this December! Join PLA and Nancy Pearl for an hour-long webinar filled with reading recommendations guaranteed to make friends, family, and patrons smile and start turning pages.
During this webinar exclusively for PLA members, Nancy will share her recommendations of books for adults with some teen reads included. She’ll also provide a downloadable handout of the recommendations so you can share them with your patrons. Combine Nancy’s irrepressible charm and undeniable knowledge, and you’ll have an hour of fun and great ideas.
Space is limited, so sign up today to participate in the live event! All PLA members will have complimentary access to the archived recording of the webinar.
Who Should Attend
Any PLA member looking for book recommendations to use themselves and share with their patrons.
The New York Times calls Nancy Pearl “the talk of librarian circles.” Nancy speaks to library and community groups across the country and she regularly recommends books on NPR’s Morning Edition, as well as on many public radio station programs. She entertains and informs standing-room only crowds, and she’s even had a librarian action figure modeled in her likeness.
Some of Nancy’s books include Book Crush: For Kids and Teens – Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment, and Interest; Book Lust: Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment, and Interest; and Book Lust to Go: Recommended Reading for Travelers, Vagabonds, and Dreamers. She also has partnered with Amazon Publishing to develop “Book Lust Rediscoveries,” a series devoted to reprinting some of the best, out-of-print novels originally published between 1960 and 2000.
