Description:

The Ruth Enlow Library is pleased to participate in this year’s One Maryland One Book project – a program designed to bring diverse groups of Marylanders together in library, school, or community settings to share a common reading experience by discussing a work of literature and participating in related events. Several programs are planned around this year’s selected book – All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely. An adult book discussion will take place at the Accident Library on Thursday, September 8, from 5:30 – 7 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. Copies of the book are available at the Accident library for participants. Registration is required for the book discussion by contacting Crystal at the Accident Library (301-746-8792 or crystal@relib.net)

Krista McKenzie, Instructional and Reference Librarian at Garrett College will facilitate the adult discussions at both Accident and Oakland. A former children’s specialist and branch manager for the Ruth Enlow Library, McKenzie earned her Bachelor of Science in English, Philosophy, and Secondary Education from Frostburg State University in 2001. Several years later, she achieved her Master’s in Education and an MBA from FSU, and in 2010, a Master’s in Library and Information Science from Drexel University. A member of the American Library Association and the Maryland Library Association, McKenzie has presented at the local, state, and national levels and is a board member of the Young Adult Library Services Association.

This year’s OMOB selection tells “the powerful and relatable story of two high-schoolers brought together by injustice,” notes Maryland Humanities. “What would you do if you witnessed something you never would have believed? And how do you know you’re doing the right thing?”

One Maryland One Book is Maryland’s only statewide community reading project and is the signature program of the Maryland Center for the Book at Maryland Humanities. Initiated in fall 2008, this year-long project culminates with two months of public programs, using literature to spur conversations in communities around the state. More information about the program and author tours is available at www.mdhumanities.org/programs/one-maryland-one-book.

Your participation in programs signifies your permission for us to use any photos that we take of you. Please speak to a librarian at the event if you would prefer that your photo not be taken.
