I am! My name is Phoebe Stein Davis, and I am the new Executive Director of the Maryland Humanities Council. I am thrilled to be here for so many reasons. First, as a native Marylander I’m happy to be back home; I grew up in Montgomery County. More importantly, I am excited and energized by the work of MHC.
Because of MHC, thousands of Marylanders are reading and discussing the same book as part of our One Maryland One Book program, middle school and high school students are making documentary films about important historical movements at History Day, healthcare workers are reflecting on their work through reading and discussion in Literature & Medicine, neighbors are gathering to talk about race in their communities through our Community Conversations, and your local library is hosting free presentations by enthusiastic and knowledgeable artists, performers, and educators through our Speakers Bureau program.
Please join us! Find out how you can take advantage of our free educational programs and grant opportunities by exploring our website, calling 410-685-0095, or emailing email@example.com.
I look forward to seeing you at our programs soon!
