Movies & Television
The New York Public Library posted a list last month with many of the books that appear or are mentioned in the acclaimed TV series Mad Men. If you love the show, or are looking for what people may have read in the 1960s, these are the titles from the NYPL list that CPL has:
The best of everything: a novel by Rona Jaffe
The chrysanthemum and the sword: patterns of Japanese culture by Ruth Benedict; with a foreword by Ezra F. Vogel
Exodus by Leon Uris
- Grizzly Tales: These are compilations of many short stories cartoons with a slightly creepy bent
- Ruby Gloom: This new series stars a cheerful girl and her rather gloomy friends
- Cartoon Network Halloween specials: With so many cartoons to choose from, there's definitely going to be something that appeals to everyone
- Halloweentown: The premise of this Disney Channel series of movies is that Halloween creatures exist in a alternative universe. The fourth installment stars Lucas Grabeel, in his pre-High School Musical Days.
Check it out today. And if you have the choice of steak or fish, spring for the lasagna.
