The 2015 One Maryland One Book is Daniel James Brown’s The Boys in the Boat


The 2015 One Maryland One Book theme is "Sports: the human drama of athletic competition," offering readers across the state a chance to delve into the triumph and tragedy of competition during our programs in the fall. This year’s book is The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown.

In its eighth year, One Maryland One Book 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 associated programs at public libraries, high schools, colleges and universities, museums, bookstores, and community and senior centers. Programs will take place each year in the fall. A calendar of free public events will be available online this summer.
