2020 One Maryland One Book Pick and Author Tour
The Island of Sea Women chronicles the lives of two girls, Young-sook and Mi-ja, who are living on the Korean island, Jeju. Though having differences in family lineage, the two friends seem inseparable. Based during the Japanese occupation of the 1930’s and 1940’s, World War II, and through the Korean War, their friendship is tested to the breaking point.

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.

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!
