Books and Reading: Programs and Events

So many books, so little time. Let us lead you to your next great read through the resources available in this guide.

Nancy Pearl at the Central Library

Rock star librarian and Readers’ Advisory Hero Nancy Pearl will be coming to Central Library to promote her debut novel George & Lizzie, a story that chronicles the relationships of a woman named Lizzie.

Nancy Pearl has spent much of her career advising people on what to read, and now it’s time to enjoy Pearl’s story telling. While much of the book takes place elsewhere, Pearl paid homage to the Tulsa community in a couple chapters. 

Pearl will be at the Central Library (5th & Denver) on Tuesday, September 19th, 7:00pm. Sponsored by BookSmart Tulsa and Tulsa City County Library.
