A diversity of new biographies at the Port Jervis Library

By Sherry Mohan-Neves Port Jervis Free Library

This week we feature five newly-released biographies of some diverse and interesting celebrities. These are popular bestsellers, so call or go online to place a hold (see below).

“Going There” by Katie Couric. The deeply personal life story of a girl-next-door media icon. She says, “Television can put you in a box; the flat-screen can flatten. On TV, you are larger than life but smaller, too. It is not the whole story, and it is not the whole me. This book is.”

“The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music” by Dave Grohl. “The legendary American musician, singer, songwriter and documentary filmmaker offers a collection of stories, written by his own hand, that focus on the memories of his life, from his childhood to today.”

“Yours Cruelly, Elvira: Memoirs of the Mistress of the Dark” by Cassandra Peterson. “…the undisputed Queen of Halloween, reveals her full story, filled with intimate bombshells, told by the bombshell herself.”

“Will” by Will Smith. “In this memoir, one of the most dynamic and globally recognized entertainment forces of our time opens up fully about his life.”

“You Got Anything Stronger?” by Gabrielle Union, bestselling author of “We’re Going to Need More Wine”. “Funny, tender, and so good.” Mindy Kaling
