Lena Horne (1917-2010)

When it comes to certain celebrated people, we find ourselves mulling over appropriate adjectives to describe them.

Exceptional. Courageous. Talented. Strong. Unique. Beautiful.

All of these words can be used to describe Lena Horne. We lost her last week. She was 92 years old.

So Many To Choose From

THE ART OF MENDING is my favorite book by Elizabeth Berg, but having to choose just one was hard.  She has written over twenty wonderful books and they can all be found in the library.  Even her newly published novel, THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU, is already on our shelves although it is not staying there.  The request list has started to build, so be quick and add yourself to the list.

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's a Superhero Movie!

casual superheroLast weekend I was one of the thousands of people across the country who flocked to the theater to see Iron Man 2, the much anticipated continuation of the Iron Man movie franchise. It was excellent, everything a superhero movie should be. Of course, even if the movie had been terrible, I still probably would have enjoyed it. I have a (not-so) secret love of all superhero movies – even the cheesy ones (Fantastic Four). I can’t help it! There is just something about that particular genre. The movies almost always feature great characters, a little bit of romance, a lot of heart, a battle between good and evil and, most importantly, plenty of improbable action sequences. What could be better?

Iron Man 2 may still be in theaters, but there are equally wonderful superhero movies already on DVD. Browse the HCPL catalog and request your favorites today!
