We are loving these Pulitzer Prize Winners.

Demon Copperhead

Barbara Kingsolver

2023 Pulitzer Prize  

Set in the mountains of southern Appalachia, this novel tells the story of poverty, compassion and faith in contemporary American south.

"An angry, powerful book seething with love and outrage for a community too often stereotyped or ignored.” — Kirkus Review (Starred)

“Kingsolver is a writer who can help us understand and navigate the chaos of these times.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

The Netanyahus

Joshua Cohen 

2022 Pulitzer Prize 

 A wildly inventive, genre-bending comedy of blending, identity, and politics about the Jewish American experience.


“Absorbing, delightful, hilarious, breathtaking... the best and most relevant novel I’ve read in what feels like forever.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Clever, funny, dark, deeply moving...a joy to read.” —The Jewish Chronicle

Dwayne Keith & Friends Concert

Incredible music from a Hartford musician? Yes, please!

HPL presents in partnership with the Greater Hartford Arts Council

Dwayne Keith and Friends.

At the age of 9, Dwayne Keith began playing drums in church, and he is now known for his well-orchestrated fills, groove and dexterity. Dwayne studied jazz with professors Ken Fischer (The Hartt School) and Doug Maher (Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts).

Saturday, August 19, 4:00 - 5:00 pm

Artbox 769 Park St

(Please bring chairs or blankets)
