One Maryland One Book, Maryland’s statewide reading project, is underway throughout Southern Maryland now through October. The initiative is designed to encourage everyone in the state to read and then discuss one book chosen by the educational nonprofit Maryland Humanities. This year’s selection, “The Island of Sea Women” by Lisa See, dovetails with Gov. Larry Hogan’s designation of 2020 as The Year of the Woman in Maryland.

As part of the One Maryland One Book program, author Lisa See will speak during a regional Southern Maryland virtual public event Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, though registration is required by visiting online.

Visit your library online to learn more about the author event, One Maryland One Book virtual book discussions and more.
