Hello all of you voracious readers out there! For those of you who love to read and share your opinions and insights with others who are reading the same material, we invite you to participate in the Maryland Humanities Council’s Program called One Maryland, One Book now in its 5th year. The program is designed to bring together diverse people through the shared experience of reading the same book, thereby promoting widespread reading groups, lectures and discussions on the material.
This year the council selected The Cellist of Sarajevoby Steven Galloway. The novel focuses on the siege of Sarajevo, inspired by the true story of cellist Vedran Smailovic. To highlight and promote discussion of the material, Langsdale Library and its marketing committee will host “Viewpoints of war and music: A panel discussion on The Cellist of Sarajevo” on Tuesday October 2 at 7pm in the Lucy and Vernon Wright Theater, Student Center at the University of Baltimore.
The evening will consist of a combination of cello performances and panel of faculty speakers. For further information visit our events page. See you there!
