Education of Harriet Hatfield
At sixty, Harriet Hatfield begins a new adventure. Her friend of thirty years has died and left her enough money to fund her dream of running a women's bookstore. But when Hatfield House: A Bookstore for Women opens in a blue collar neighbourhood near Boston, Harriet is bombarded by anonymous threats and obscenities are written on the windows.
Then a Boston Globe reporter headlines her interview, Lesbian Bookstore Owner Threatened, and the education of Harriet begins. At the end, Harriet stands undismayed in the door she herself has opened into the disturbing world of homophobia.
