Many people in U.S. literary circles know of Seattle über-librarian, author, book critic and host of BookLust -- Nancy Pearl. Earlier this month, in an article in the Post-Gazette, Nancy Pearl recommended The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat for summer reading: This is the tale of three African-American girls who visit a restaurant every Sunday after church. The proprietor nicknames them "The Supremes" after the famous Motown singing trio, and the novel follows the women into adulthood. To see a larger list of recommendations, including some of Nancy Pearl's other summer reading suggestions, check-out the full article here. To learn more about the woman herself (and about the genuine action-figure based on her) see the Wikipedia page here. In the U.S. literary scene, getting your book recommended by Nancy Pearl is a BIG deal!
