Nancy Pearl, the award-winning librarian and NPR commentator known as “America’s librarian,” joins in the Loudoun celebration of the Fall for the Book festival with an Oct. 12 appearance at the Gum Spring Library in Stone Ridge.

Pearl will discuss her debut novel, “George & Lizzie,” at the library beginning at 7 p.m.

The recently released novel explores an unlikely marriage at a crossroads. The story touches on new and past loves, the scars of childhood and the defining moments of an imperfect marriage.

Pearl is the author of the Book Lust series, three volumes focused on reading recommendations for adults “for every mood, moment and reason,” and “Book Crush,” a similar project for children and teens. She was the model for the best-selling librarian action figure of all time.

The Loudoun County Public Library is a program partner of the Fall for the Book festival, which is based at George Mason University in Fairfax.

Additional upcoming Fall for the Book events in Loudoun include a drawing workshop and digital inking demo by illustrator and comic book artist Orion Zangara, author of “The Stone Man Mysteries,” at the Rust Library on Oct. 14 at 1 p.m. and an appearance by Monica Bhide, author of “Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken” at the Gum Spring Library on Oct. 23 at 7 p.m.

Books will be available for purchase at each event, courtesy of Middleburg’s Second Chapter Books.
