Hena Khan in Contemporary Conversations June 4 @Silver Spring Library

The Montgomery County Public Libraries will host children’s author Hena Khan on Sunday, June 4 at 4 pm. Ms. Khan was a presenter at the MCPL Diversity in Children’s Literature Symposium earlier this spring. In case you were unable to attend that event, here is another opportunity to hear her speak on her experiences as a Muslim American writer who writes about her culture and religion. She grew up in Montgomery County and still lives here today. We hope you can join us for this conversation.
