The Maryland Humanities Council has announced its selection for the 2010 One Maryland One Book common reading program, and it''s Outcasts United.
One Maryland One Book is a state-wide program that encourages communities, schools and libraries around Maryland to read and engage in conversation and programming around a single book. Last year''s title was James McBride''s Song Yet Sung.
This is Outcasts'' fourth common read selection this year, after Roswell Reads (GA), A Tale for Two Cities (IL) and One Book, One San Diego. Over a dozen colleges and universities have assigned the book as a required read for incoming freshmen students this fall.
