Harford County Public Library will host New York Times best-selling author Lisa See, the 2020 One Maryland One Book author of “The Island Sea of Women,” during a virtual event Oct. 7 at 2 p.m. The event, organized by Maryland Humanities, is one of six virtual stops for the author in Maryland.

During the virtual event, See will discuss her book about the complex, decades-long friendship between two women who are members of an all-female diving collective on the Korean island of Jeju. The book follows their journey from the Japanese occupation in the 1930s through the 21st century.

Mary Hastler, CEO of the Harford County Public Library, will be in conversation with the author, and there will be a Q&A session after the discussion.
