We'll Always Have...

I recently saw a new book that was added to the HCPL collection.  The title caught my attention because it references one of my all-time favorite movies.  In fact, I consider it one of those perfect films, where everything works together.  Story, setting, performances, direction.  It’s one that I’ve seen over and over again and I still find myself drawn to it.

The book is We’ll Always Have Casablanca by Noah Isenberg.
