We're not letting a pandemic stop one of our favorite annual events! This year, the Literacy Breakfast with America's favorite librarian, Nancy Pearl, is going virtual and we hope you will join us.

Since 1983, the Whatcom Literacy Council has helped hundreds of adults in Whatcom County transform their lives by strengthening their literacy skills with free tutoring and small group classes. Proceeds from the event go directly to programs that help our neighbors here in Whatcom County build skills that help them get jobs and take care of their families.

Make yourself a cup of coffee and come listen to the wonderful and witty Nancy Pearl share her book recommendations for the year. Village Books will be linked for book sales of her suggestions. Registration is free but a donation is expected. Proceeds support the free adult literacy programs of the Whatcom Literacy Council

Below is the list of books that Nancy recommends and by the way, did you know she has a brand new book? It's called The Writer's Library: The Authors You Love on the Books That Changed Their Lives and we think it's sure to be a bestseller.
