We thank our reading audience and our 2023 Selection Committee for their efforts in suggesting and reviewing this year’s titles.
We invite our partners and community members to a virtual feedback and listening session on Thursday, March 16 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. Share your experiences with One Maryland One Book programming over the years and what you would like to see. Register here.
What if everyone read one book at the same time?

About One Maryland One Book
When we read a great book, we can’t wait to share the experience and talk about it with others. That’s one of the joys of reading.
In that spirit, Maryland Humanities created One Maryland One Book (OMOB) to bring together diverse people in communities across the state through the shared experience of reading the same book. We invite you to participate in book-centered discussions and related programs at public libraries, high schools, colleges, museums, bookstores, and community and senior centers around the state.
OMOB programs, including an author tour, take place each year in the fall. A calendar of free public events will be available online this summer.
One Maryland One Book Lead Sponsors & Partner
This flagship program of Maryland Humanities’ Maryland Center for the Book would not be able to reach all 23 Maryland counties and Baltimore City without the continued support of our partners and sponsors. Please join us in thanking them for their generosity!
