A Miracle for Me: Gay Winters
Life has been pretty great for Sebastian Snow. The Emporium is thriving and his relationship with NYPD homicide detective Calvin Winter is everything he´s ever wanted. With Valentine´s Day around the corner, Sebastian´s only cause for concern is whether Calvin should be taken on a romantic date. It´s only when an unknown assailant smashes the Emporium´s window and leaves a peculiar note behind that all plans get pushed aside in favor of another mystery. Sebastian is quickly swept up in a series of grisly yet seemingly unrelated murders. The only connection tying the deaths together are curiosities from the lost museum of P.T. Barnum. Despite Calvin´s attempts to keep Sebastian out of the investigation, someone is forcing his hand, and it becomes apparent that the entire charade exists for Sebastian to solve. With each clue that brings him closer to the killer, he´s led deeper into Calvin´s official cases. It´s more than just Sebastian´s livelihood and relationship on the line - it´s his very life. 1.

Actress Cornelia Otis Skinner and journalist Emily Kimbrough offer a lighthearted, hilarious memoir of their European tour in the 1920s, when they were fresh out of college from Bryn Mawr. Some of the more amusing anecdotes involve a pair of rabbit-skin capes that begin shedding at the most inopportune moments and an episode in which the girls are stranded atop Notre Dame cathedral at midnight. And, of course, there´s romance, in the form of handsome young doctor Tom Newhall and college ´´Lothario´´ Avery Moore. Published in 1942, the book spent five weeks at the top of the New York Times best-seller list in the winter of 1943 and was made into a motion picture in 1944. 1. Language: English.

Tobias Jackson grew up in Coburn, a town where the gay population equaled exactly one: him. Add that to the fact that his dream guy was his best friend´s jerky older brother, Levi Baxter, and it made hooking up virtually impossible. Now home from college for winter break, Toby is a different person. He left Coburn for San Francisco, where he wasn´t the lone gay guy and the only black kid in town. And yeah, he took advantage of what the city had to offer. Apparently Toby isn´t the only one who´s changed. Levi´s not acting like the self-centered guy with all the answers that Toby remembers from growing up. Oh, and Levi´s realized that he´s bisexual, which makes things a lot more interesting. Heading back to college, Toby doesn´t expect to meet up with Levi again, despite him being in med school not far away. A surprise visit from Levi blows that assumption out of the water. As they spend more time together, Toby sees Levi as more than just the fantasy; he´s complicated, unsure, and real. But if Toby can´t get out of the past and find the words he keeps locked inside himself, he´ll lose his chance at Levi for good. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Crisden.
