The Howard County Library System, in partnership with Maryland Humanities, will host a virtual author talk Tuesday with Lisa See, author of “The Island of Sea Women,” the One Maryland One Book this year.

“Every year, the author of the selected book comes to Maryland and tours the state,” said Andrea Lewis, senior program officer for Maryland Humanities. “This year, all events will be virtual and take place between Oct. 4 and 7.”

This is the 13th year for the One Maryland One Book program, which was created to bring people together throughout the state through a shared reading experience, according to the Maryland Humanities website. Once the selected book is announced, usually in March, various events are organized throughout the year, with Maryland Humanities providing free reader’s guides, free books, bookmarks and more.


“It is a community reading program,” Lewis said. “Organizations of all types from across the state join us every year to read.”
