Waiting For You Book Club

Reading a book Patrons who join the WAITING FOR YOU BOOK CLUB @ the Haverstraw King's Daughters Public Library will automatically be put on the list for new books by their favorite fiction authors. Consider it one less thing you have to think about!

How It Works:
Place a check mark next to the names of up to 5 authors from the preselected list of best-selling authors in our form. Each time your chosen author publishes a new novel, you will be added to the reserve list for the new release. While we cannot guarantee how close to the top of the list you will be, you'll be on it without having to place the reserve. Staff at Haverstraw King's Daughters Library will inform you when something new is waiting for you.

How to Join:
Complete and submit our online form or pick up a form from the Reference or Circulation desk. Paper forms can be submitted at the Reference Desk.

More About the Service:
This service is available to HKDPL cardholders only and is for new titles only; reprints will generally not be included. Please pick up books promptly when notified of their availability. Because of their popularity, these books are in high demand. We ask that you be considerate of those who are waiting.

Visible City Visible City
by Tova Mirvis

Summary: Nina is a harried young mother who spends her evenings spying on the older couple across the street through her son's Fisher-Price binoculars. She is drawn to their quiet contentment - reading on the couch, massaging each other's feet - so unlike her own lonely, chaotic world of nursing and soothing and simply getting by. One night, through that same window, she spies a young couple in the throes of passion. Who are these people, and what happened to her symbol of domestic bliss?

In the coming weeks, Nina encounters the older couple, Leon and Claudia, their daughter Emma and her fiancé, and many others on the streets of her Upper West Side neighborhood, eroding the safe distance of her secret vigils. Soon anonymity gives way to different - and sometimes dangerous - forms of intimacy, and Nina and her neighbors each begin to question their own paths.
