* Greenwich Library's Community Survey (discussed here) has been extended to Monday, June 13th. So you've still got time to fill out and send us your thoughts on what you'd like to see us doing at the library. Click here to access the survey.
* Max Allan Collins favorably cited my review of his and the late Mickey Spillane's Kiss Her Goodbye on his website here, calling it "insightful" . Thanks so much, Mr. Collins! As a big fan of yours from way back (starting with a certain comic strip back in 1977), that meant a lot! (My reviews of previous collaborations by both authors can be found here and here. And Greenwich Library does carry some of their other books as well. To reserve online their titles from us, click here for Mr. Spillane and click here for Mr. Collins. You're in for a treat!)
* Finally, the library's Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Club for students in grades 9-12, that I sort of oversee and which I first discussed here, has undergone a slight change in format. Click here for a description. In a nutshell, we're widening our focus to works from the past (Isaac Asmiov, Ray Bradbury, Edgar Rice Burroughs) to the present (William Gibson, China Mieville, Cherie Priest) and not limit ourselves just to mainstream "Young Adult" titles. (Though I should point out that I still encourage readers to check out the likes of Suzanne Collins and Scott Westerfeld, among others in that field.) Students who attend will be asked to discuss their favorite titles and basically make a case for why others should read them. Next meeting is June 15 at 4:00 pm. More details here.
