Nancy Pearl is a reader and a librarian, not a travel agent–so instead of recommending 120 places to visit before you die, she recommends 120 places to read about before you visit. Known for her librarian action figure and her influential Book Lust, Seattleite Pearl–author of the new Book Lust to Go–summons the perfect book to connect with any interest or adventure, whether it requires a passport or just an armchair: V.S. Naipaul’s Among the Believers before a trip to Indonesia, for example, or Nuala O’Faollin’s Are You Somebody? before heading to Ireland. Pearl is joined for onstage conversation by KUOW host Steve Scher.
