Southside Library to Host Author Talk by Hugh Hardy Jr. on October 5


We are honored here at the Southside Branch Public Library to have the opportunity to sit down and chat with local author and retired Birmingham Public Library employee Hugh Hardy, Jr.  At 1:00 p.m. on  Wednesday, October 5, you can meet Hardy in person at the Southside Branch Public Library, 1814 11th Avenue South,  or watch live on the Southside Branch Public Library’s Facebook page.

From his love and fascination with books, Hugh garnered together his imagination and his thoughts and penned his first novel, “Maysa Brown: Rise to Power” (2018). He didn’t stop there. In the summer of 2019, Hugh furthered the journey of Maysa Brown in “Maysa Brown: A World in Turmoil.”

 From the urging of readers, he carried Maysa’s journey a little further by creating the end of her journey in “Maysa Brown: A Season of Change.” 

Hardy is currently working on a fourth book in his Maysa Brown series, tentatively entitled, "Maysa Brown: The Return Home."

Join Hugh Hardy, Jr. on Wednesday, October 5, 2022 at 1:00 pm to listen to excerpts from his book as well as engage him with questions about his journey from reading to writing books.
