For ages 16 – Adults. Join us for this special One Maryland One Book virtual author tour stop! This year’s book selection The Book of Delights is 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 Gary’s collection as a guide to finding their own daily delights. Ross Gay will be interviewed by Ted Zaleski.

Purchase a signed copy of The Book of Delights at A Likely Story Bookstore. One Maryland One Book (OMOB) brings together diverse people in communities across the state through the shared experience of reading the same book. Presented by Maryland Humanities in partnership with A Likely Story Bookstore, Carroll Arts Center, Carroll Citizens for Racial Equality, NAACP Carroll County Chapter, and Carroll County Public Library. This program is made possible with funds from the Maryland Humanities. Visit site for details.
