What if everyone read one book at the same time?
The theme for One Maryland One Book 2019 is “Nature”
Thank you for all of your title suggestions! Our selection committee is now hard at work on narrowing down the list to a Top Ten list, which will be posted here when it’s available. In January the committee will meet to narrow the list down to the Top Three titles.

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.

Activities in Baltimore City are funded in part by Mayor Catherine E. Pugh and the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts.
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!
