July Book Reveal!

Posted by hpabillings@gmail.com on June 10, 2015 at 8:00 PM

For July, we will be reading the novel that inspired the huge box office hit, The Fault in Our Stars (the movie is eponymously named)!


Join us Wednesday, July 8th at 7 PM in the Off the Leaf lounge to discuss it!  (To share the event, visit its facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1615926455314558/)


Tie-in Campaign:Like our "mother" organization, we will be celebrating Esther Day on August 3rd.  Here's a bit of information about Esther Day (or visit here to find out what the HPA itself has to say about it)--

Most of us are now aware of the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster, based on author John Green’s friend, Esther. Before she died, the author and his brother decided to honour Esther’s birthday every year and asked her how she would like to commemorate the occasion. Her wish was to have the day spent celebrating our platonic loved ones—unlike Valentine’s day, which celebrates romantic love, Esther requested a holiday where we tell our friends and family how much we love them. To memorialize Esther—or, as some of you may think of her, Hazel—come celebrate Esther Day with the HPA and make cards for your loved ones! We’ll have crafts available, as well as snacks and activities so you can invite all your loved ones to play games together!


We look forward to seeing you there!  Don't forget to tell your loved ones, that you love them!
