Author:

Sarah Shun-Lien Bynum

Synopsis:

Ms. Beatrice Hempel has just taken her first job as an English teacher. Closer in age and sensibility to her pupils than to her colleagues, she spends her time outside of school hours reading, writing, listening to rock and roll, and wondering whether she really was right to get engaged. In the classroom, too, she feels 'in-between'. Still young enough to understand her students' way of seeing things, she wants to be their accomplice; but she also feels a terrible responsibility as the adult witness to their adolescent growing pains.

Searching For Grace Kelly

Author:

M.G. Callahan

1955: For a small-town girl with big-city dreams, there is no address more glamorous than New York's Barbizon Hotel - the place where Grace Kelly lived when she first came to the big city. Laura, an aristocratic beauty from Connecticut, comes to stay for a magazine internship, and dreams of becoming a writer. Her hopelessly romantic roommate, Dolly, is there to attend secretarial school, and is looking to be swept off her feet. Vivian, a brash British bombshell with a disregard for the hotel's rules, rounds out the trio of friends. Together they embark on a journey of discovery that will take them from the penthouse apartments of Park Avenue to the Beat scene of Greenwich Village to Atlantic City's Steel Pier - and into the arms of very different men who will alter their lives forever.
