Marylanders read together with One Maryland One Book
It only takes 3 steps to participate in One Maryland One Book!
1. Grab your copy
Find the One Maryland One Book at your local library or bookstore and get reading!
2. Reach out
Each year, more than 10,000 Marylanders read the One Maryland One Book. How many of those people are your friends or family members? How many are perfect strangers you sit next to on the train or stand in line with at the grocery store? Use the book to jump-start a meaningful conversation with an old friend or make a new one.
3. Pull up a chair
Join thousands of other Marylanders at one of the many book discussions and related programs happening around the state in September and October. Keep an eye on our Event Calendar for updates. All One Maryland One Book events listed are open to the public and FREE!

Keep the conversation going with a book club
We love to hear about great conversations and stories of all the interesting book-related programs you attended. It’s not unusual for One Maryland One Book conversations to inspire participants to start a new book club. If you are interested in starting a book club, we recommend that you take a peek at the I love libraries website.
