The DVD of the film is now available from Barnes and Noble for only $39.95 - four disks with complete film and much more footage. Also, the original novel, THE STONES OF SUMMER, is being re-published this month. New Yorker Films is distributing the film to non-theatrical venues - like libraries, colleges, English courses.Contact Linda Duchin at:

This film was shown at ALA a year and a half ago in Atlanta at the national conference. Film Forum and other sites screened the film commercially. This film is a masterpiece in every way - visually, emotionally, musically. Hopefully all librarians and lovers of libraries will see this film to see how one man showed the importance of books. The director worked in a library during college and visits many libraries in the course of tracking down his lost author.
