Please join me in congratulating the MCC Libraries Public Programming Committee members Lori Annesi (Chair), Alice Wilson, Debbie Mohr, Charlene Rezabek and Ted Ciambor, as they have been awarded a book discussion grant from the New York Council for the Humanities.

Purple Hibiscus – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Inheritance of Loss – Kiran Desai
Mothers and Sons: Stories – Colm Toibin
Persepolis – Marjane Satrapi
More information, including details on registration, will be forthcoming to the MCC community. Questions, please contact Lori Annesi at x2338 or via email "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org".
