HCC’s Library and participate in a lively book discussion about Purple Hibiscus

This fall join thousands of Marylanders who will be reading and talking about Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche. The novel is about the emotional turmoil of adolescence, the powerful bonds of family, and the bright promise of freedom. The 2017 One Maryland One Book initiative will provide book lovers with a chance to receive a free book and participate in a lively book discussion.

In conjunction with the initiative, Harford Community College Library is sponsoring a book discussion on October 2 at noon in the Hays-Heighe House located on the campus at 401 Thomas Run Road. Free copies of the book will be available at the College Library after September 1st (while supplies last). Registration is highly recommended as seating is limited. The general public is invited to this free event. To register, email or call 443-412-2131.

Readings are scheduled at several locations around the state, including a reading during the Baltimore Book Festival. For information on author tours, visit
