The event is being hosted by the HCCC Division of Continuing Education in partnership with the College’s Office of Student Activities, JCFamilies.com, and Joys in Teaching. There is no charge for admission.

Attendees will be able to purchase new and used books, shop local vendors’ wares, and participate in book readings.
