About One Maryland One Book

One Maryland One Book (OMOB) is Maryland’s first-ever statewide community reading project and is the signature program of the Maryland Center for the Book at Maryland Humanities. Initiated in fall 2008, this year-long project culminates with three months of public programs and is designed to bring together diverse people in communities across the state through the shared experience of reading the same book. Readers are then invited to participate in book-centered discussions and other events at public libraries, high schools, colleges and universities, museums, bookstores, and community and senior centers.


The selected book for 2020 is The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See. The Island of Sea Women is a powerful tale of a decades-long friendship that takes place on the Korean island of Jeju. Readers will be turning the pages eagerly to see how the closest bond of friendship came to its breaking point.
