New DVD Releases for April 2nd

The Bible - The Epic Miniseries (2 Week DVD)

Hemingway and Gellhorn (Nicole Kidman)

Real Men Write Romance (Really!)

Romance fans tend to be voracious readers, always on the lookout for a new author to follow (or an author who's new to them).  With that in mind, I'd like to spotlight a few great romance writers you might not have picked up before.  Let me introduce you to Leigh Greenwood, Dale Cramer, Jessica Stirling, Naomi Neale, M. L. Buchman, Lee Carroll, Z. A. Maxfield, and Ilona Andrews. 

On the surface they don't seem to have a lot in common, aside from writing great romance.  Some are award winners, while others have seen more modest success.  They're all over the map, as far as subgenres go: western, inspirational, historical, chick lit, suspense, gothic, LGBT, and urban fantasy/ paranormal.  Oh... there is one other detail they all have in common: behind every one of their keyboards sits a male author.

With a little help from our Friends....

Have you noticed those new blue and white road signs directing drivers to the New City Library?  Thanks to the FRIENDS of the New City Library, annual membership dues offset the cost of purchasing the seven directional signs placed at key intersections throughout Clarkstown.

Please help FRIENDS with other projects on the Library's wish list and join us today or renew your membership.  Applications are available at the Library and there are several membership levels to select from.
