The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See

Join us from Mountain Maryland to the Ocean City shore as we read and discuss this year’s memorable story.

This year's One Maryland One Book (OMOB) is the story of the complex and decades-long friendship between Young-sook and Mi-ja, two women living on the Korean island of Jeju. Readers can follow their journey from the Japanese occupation of the 1930's to the 21st century.

As part of the OMOB programming for the state’s largest reading and discussion program, author Lisa See visits virtually to discuss her book The Island of Sea Women. She will be in conversation with Laura Yoo, Professor of English at Howard Community College and a board member of Howard County Poetry and Literature Society.
