Like most of you, we consider ourselves to be Nancy Pearl devotees. And though we go to bat for all of our titles, there's an extra-special thrill when Nancy loves something we publish. This was just the case at the ALA Midwinter conference in San Diego, when Nancy tweeted about Caribou Island, one of our hottest titles: "Reading David Vann's gorgeously crafted Caribou Island broke my heart. Wow." Moments after Nancy's tweet went out, librarians filed into our booth and--happily--discovered a pile of hardcovers that we handed to the masses.
Another librarian-favorite also found favor with Nancy: Jacqueline Winspear's The Mapping of Love and Death. She wrote: "Forgot to tweet how much I ♥ Jacqueline Winspear's Mapping of Love and Death; can't wait to read the new one [A Lesson in Secrets] this April. You go, Maisie!"
