OW Staff Writer | 5/9/2014, midnight

The Palmdale City Library will host a meet and greet with Maria Morales, author of the book My Graduation, at the library, 700 E. Palmdale Blvd. on Saturday, May 17 from 1 to 2 p.m.

Morales will be on hand to sign copies of her book. Copies will be available for purchase as well.

“I started writing my book the first day that I started taking classes at College of the Canyons,” Morales said about her work. “The title of my book is My Graduation, because I finished the day I graduated. It talks about my struggles to get an education while raising a family, as well as the nostalgia for my old country and my love for my new country.”

The Palmdale City Library is open seven days a week. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
