Pearl visit a success | Letter

July 18, 2013 · Updated 2:06 PM

On behalf of the Orcas Island Public Library, I would like to thank everyone who attended and helped with our “Visit with Nancy Pearl” on July 10.

It was a great event, and nearly 100 people were there. Nancy recommended and described 17 titles, and I was told that after the event, several people rushed down to the library to check them out – she’s that good.

Thank you to the Friends of the Orcas Island Library for help in sponsoring this talk, Maurine Barnett for picking Nancy up and delivering her to the venue, Darvill’s books for providing books to be autographed, Holly King for assisting me at the entrance, and Maggie Vinson and the Outlook Inn for use of the Victorian Room.

Nancy has agreed to return next year with some new summer reading recommendations, and if you  would like to see yesterday’s titles, we have the list and all the books are available at the library.

And please mark your calendars for Wednesday, Aug. 7 at 3 p.m. when the library welcomes author JA Jance, again at the Outlook Inn.

Kathleen Lunde

Adult Public Services Librarian
