Join us for this special One Maryland One Book virtual author tour stop! This year's book selection is The Book of Delights
 by Ross Gay. 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 Gay’s collection as a guide to finding their own daily “delights.” 
Ross Gay will be interviewed by Ted Zaleski.
A Likely Story is privileged  to be a part of the 2021 One Maryland One Book. 
The first 50 books ordered wil receive a signed book plate by Ross Gay.
