Please read “My Immigrant Students: Newcomers construct their new lives, one challenge at a time,” by Elena Gorokhova, an HCCC Associate Professor of ESL. Professor Gorokhova wrote this poignant and inspirational article while on sabbatical leave last semester. It features five of her former HCCC students and was published in the February 2018 issue of New Jersey Monthly (available at the HCCC Libraries). The article is linked here, along with the magazine’s cover page, where photographs of the students also appear.
Our first selection in February is Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, a graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. Pick up your copy at either campus while supplies last. And then meet fellow readers at our Book Clubs and let’s talk!
Come to either campus on the following dates to join the discussion:
Monday, February 26th – 3:30-5:00 OR Wednesday, February 28th – 1:00 to 3:30
And, oh yeah, food will be served at each of the Book Club gatherings. Come and ENJOY!
The Spring 2018 Program Guide is now available. Click here to view it online or pick up a copy at the Main or NHC Library.
Sign up for a new semester of the Book Club featuring Fun Home and Everything I Never Told You. Stop by the Main Library Makerspace for open hours and workshops where you can unleash your creativity with arts and crafts projects. Play friendly video game rivalries with your classmates with either Super Smash Bros, Street Fighter, or Mario Kart. And if you’re graduating, decorate your cap so you can stand out of the crowd of blank green caps.
For more information, see a staff member or Librarian. Looking forward to a fun and creative time this spring semester!
