Reading Room Cliffs Notes: Week of May 26

Reading Room Cliffs Notes is the essential guide to what's going on in the Reading Room for the upcoming week. The "Flashback" section captures a highlight from last week, while "Foreshadowing" gives a full list of the upcoming week's events. Make a visit to the Bryant Park Reading Room presented by HSBC a plot point in your week!  

Flashback of the Week: Emily Giffin, The One and Only 

Emily Giffin (right), author of The One and Only, talked to Jane Green (left) on what inspired her book:  “The One and Only explores this idea of unconventional love. I think a lot have this feeling that our life should look a certain way, and our relationships should be a certain way, from family and society’s expectations.

What happens if the thing you want isn’t right on paper necessary? Or if you fell in love with the person you shouldn’t?”
