The Howard County Book Connection seeks to connect our community through shared learning experiences that promote productive dialogue, critical thinking, and intellectual enrichment. The entire college and county community will be encouraged to read the book selection and participate in a variety of activities through the academic year.

The book is chosen each year by the Book Connection committee, which has representatives from most areas and divisions in the college as well as Howard County Library System. If you'd like to learn more, feel free to ask one of the following people:
