    When famous novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, his secretary Myra continues to take dictation, somehow, in this romance-meets-mystery-meets-ghost story. Attacked by skeptics, the press and Woolsey’s jealous widow, Myra sets out to prove she is more than just an artful forger. Is she trying to steal Woolsey’s legacy now that she cannot have his love, or might she truly possess a gift the world can’t understand? The Philadelphia Inquirer calls Ghost-Writer a “tantalizing, understated and lovely” romance about the power of the written word and the wonder of creativity.

    After 30 years, there’s still no story that better celebrates the gift of friendship than Steel Magnolias! The close-knit women who frequent Truvy’s Beauty Salon have lots of time to gossip, but it’s their unshakeable bonds that define them. Amid cuts, curls and free advice, these six glorious Southern belles share the joys and bear the sorrows of life together. With its mix of quick humor, quirky personalities and touching sentimentality, you’ll fall in love all over again with a story and characters that are “as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel.”

    Glorifying the triumph of the human spirit, The Elephant Man has been hailed by The New York Times as a “startling act of magic.” In 19th-century England, John Merrick is born with a genetic condition that leaves him horribly disfigured. First viewed as a carnival sideshow freak, he is ultimately embraced by the highest levels of English society. As Merrick struggles to understand what it means to be human, he imparts on others a lesson about dignity and ultimately proves that true beauty lies in the eye – and the soul – of the beholder.

    This delightful spoof on the holiday classic will have you cheering! Despite vowing to keep Christmas in his heart all year long, Ebenezer Scrooge is back to his old miserly ways just months after his miraculous transformation. When he sues Marley and the Christmas Ghosts for emotional distress, the beloved characters from A Christmas Carol return to take the stand and defend their actions. But then the trial takes an unexpected turn – just who is the guilty party? The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge comes from the creative mind that brought us the crowd-pleasing Around the World in 80 Days. Celebrate the holidays with this sequel worthy of Dickens!
