How to Participate
Get the Book
Pick up a copy of the book at your local public library or bookstore and start up a conversation with your family, friends, co-workers, or even the person sitting next to you as you ride the bus or train. This is your chance to take a moment and have a meaningful conversation with an old friend or make a new one. Download the 2012 Reader's Guide here. Educators may be interested in using the Teacher's Guide here.
We invite you to join Honorary Chair, Maryland's First Lady Katie O'Malley, and thousands of other Marylanders at one of the many book discussions and related programs happening around the state in September and October. Check the OMOB calendar or "like" OMOB on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @MDHumanities to learn about upcoming events.

Author Tour and Program Funding
Each year, MHC invites Maryland organizations to co-host the statewide Author Tour. The author is typically available for a limited number of official tour stops, so the application process can be competitive. MHC also provides funding support to libraries, nonprofit organizations, and governmental agencies as well as secondary and postsecondary schools, to foster creative public programming across the state.
