Howard County Book Connection
The Howard County Book Connection seeks to connect our community through shared learning experiences that promote productive dialogue, critical thinking, and intellectual enrichment. In partnership with Howard Community College (HCC), this educational initiative encourages HCC students and community members to read the featured book selection and to participate in a variety of thematically related classes and events during the academic year, including author presentations, book discussions, lectures, film screenings, and performances.
Tribes by Nina Raine
In the play Tribes, Billy, who is deaf, is the only one who actually listens in his idiosyncratic, fiercely argumentative bohemian family. But when he meets Sylvia, who is going deaf, he decides he finally wants to be heard. With excoriating dialogue and sharp, compassionate insights, Nina Raine crafts a penetrating play about belonging, family and the limitations of communication.
Nominated for both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play, Tribes premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2011.
