Add Nancy Pearl of Librarian Action Figure fame to an audience of more than 160 people and you get a lot of wit mixed in with your insights.
Pearl, a 1967 SI alumna and former executive director of the Center for the Book at the Seattle Public Library, entertained the audience of the first "Human Connection: Words, Power, and Change in the BiblioTech Age" lecture series event sponsored by the School of Information.
The author of Book Lust: Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment, and Reason didn't disappoint her fans, telling stories about her decision to become a librarian and her genuine affection for the book and all it represents.
If you missed the lecture, or just want to hear it again, you're in luck. The program is available here in streaming audio format and download to your MP3 player. Sit back and enjoy!
