Book Discussion: The Book of Delights, the 2021 One Maryland, One Book Selection

Thursday, September 23, 2021

Ages 16 and up. Space is limited. Call to register!

E-books are available upon request, supplies are limited.  

Maryland Humanities (MH) created One Maryland One Book (OMOB) to “bring together diverse people in communities across the state through the shared experience of reading the same book.” The theme for this year is “Hope,” and Montpelier is excited to host a discussion on The Book of Delights, by Ross Gay.  MH describes the book as “a collection of lyrical essays. Gay wrote one essay per day over a tumultuous year and took the time to find ‘delights’ in his everyday life. The essays range in topic from the beauties in nature to what it is to be a black man in America. Readers can look to Gay’s collection as a guide to finding their own daily ‘delights.’”
