Chuckanut Radio Hour @ WCC Heiner Theater: Nancy Pearl

Variety Show, Staged Reading

Village Books is thrilled to welcome “America’s librarian” and NPR books commentator back to the Chuckanut Radio Hour. She’ll be presenting her debut novel, George & Lizzie, about an unlikely marriage at a crossroads. With pitch-perfect prose and compassion and humor to spare, George and Lizzie is an intimate story of new and past loves, the scars of childhood, and an imperfect marriage at its defining moments. The Chuckanut Radio Hour, a recipient of Bellingham's prestigious Mayor's Arts Award, is a radio variety show that began in January 2007. Each Chuckanut Radio Hour includes guest authors, musicians, performance poet Kevin Murphy, Cascadia Weekly columnist Alan Rhodes, and episodes of "As the Ham Turns" serial radio comedy, not to mention groaner jokes by hosts Chuck & Dee Robinson and announcer Rich Donnelly. The Chuckanut Radio Hour's first guest was Erik Larson and has since included Alexander McCall Smith, Elizabeth George, Cheryl Strayed, Sherman Alexie, Tom Robbins and Garrison Keillor, among many others. Tickets for the Chuckanut Radio Hour are $5 and will soon be available at Village Books and BrownPaperTickets.com. Receive a free ticket with pre-purchase of George & Lizzie (OR if you've already bought the book, with each paid ticket you'll receive a $5 voucher to spend on Village Books merchandise at the show). The Radio Hour airs every Friday at 7am, Saturday evening at 7pm and Sunday at 9pm on SPARK RADIO, KMRE 102.3FM. Co-sponsored by the Whatcom Community College Foundation, 12th Street Shoes, and Westside Pizza.
