Many thanks for the Star Trek program. I just received a glowing email from one of the attendees about it (this rarely happens, believe me!) and a couple of patrons who were leaving made very nice remarks about the tons of information you provided.—Bettyjane Surabian, YA/Reference Librarian.

[Received via email from South Salem Library, November 2008]

Hi Clive,
We were all happy here at South Salem Library with your program, Kaboom: The History of Special Effects, and your professionalism and enthusiasm running it. I am sorry that some library patrons chose to come with infants/toddlers and kids way too young to be there; we did specify over 10 years old to enjoy this program. Anyway, we all had fun and look forward to selecting another one of your programs for our library next year.

Warm Regards,
Dolores Antonetz

[Received via email from Bellmore Public Library, Fall, 2007]

Dear Clive,

Thank you for your excellent program, Video Killed the Radio Star: The History of Music Videos, which you presented at Bellmore Memorial Library last night. As always, your program met and exceeded our highest expectations.

One of my teens emailed me this morning, and I quote:
“Thank you for the show about music videos it was awesome!” Breanne

Your talk was impeccably organized, the directors and music examples you showed were fascinating, and everybody had a great time! Again, many thanks for sharing your wide ranging interests with the teens and adults of Bellmore.

Sincerely,
Patti Paris and Pat Gleiberman
