Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is next week. Are you prepared or are you anti-Valentine's Day?

We've got you covered on both fronts!

Books:


Love Poems by Nikki Giovanni
"Romantic, bold, and erotic, Love Poems expresses notions of love in ways that are delightfully unexpected. Articulating in sensuous verse what we know only instinctively, Nikki Giovanni once again confirms her place as one of our nations's most distinguished poets and powerful truth-tellers."

  I Hate Valentine's Day by Bennett Madison                                                   "Whether single, dating, married, or divorced, the dreaded February 14 arrives each year to ambush our self-esteem. No other 24-hour period convinces otherwise happy folk that they're in fact social pariahs. But now comes protection from the ritual onslaught of Auden's 12 Songs, saccharine cards, and suffocating expectations. I HATE VALENTINE'S DAY is a bitingly funny guide to getting through the Big Day painlessly, including tips on people and places it's best to avoid ('Indulge your chain restaurant cravings because no one will (or should) be celebrating at Harvesters'), ways to take your mind off being single ('Dress up like an exiled member of the royal family who has hit the skids'), and last-resort measures ('Invent a long-distance relationship'). I HATE VALENTINE'S DAY charts a welcome path back to the innocent days of candy hearts."

Movies:


Sleepless in Seattle 
"After hearing a man confess his love for his dearly departed wife on a call-in radio show, a woman falls deeply, inexplicably in love with him. Deciding he is her destiny, she treks across country on a wildly romantic impulse to meet him."








Blue Valentine
"An honest, moving and uninhibited love story. The uncompromising portrait of Dean and Cindy, a young married couple who have grown apart, taking one night away from their daughter to try to save their relationship. Highlighted by provocative scenes alternately intimate and intense, the film captured audiences and critics alike."
