Introducing AARP Maryland's Virtual Book Club


AARP Maryland's Virtual Book Club is a volunteer-led series where we explore contemporary issues in the 50+ community through the lens of literature. The book club meets bimonthly online.

The inaugural selections explore stories out of the coastal Delmarva Peninsula, including fiction and non-fiction tales of beauty, courage, and resilience. The series kicked off exploring the intergenerational caregiving themes woven into the beloved children's tale "Misty of Chincoteague" by Marguerite Henry, Sept. 14 with author and editor Emily Rich.

Ensuing sessions are facilitated by an array of authors whose works have chronicled life on the Shore, including Fran Severn, Susan Reiss and Christopher T. George, as well as community thought leaders Deborah Dickerson and Mary Angela Baker.

Both AARP members and non-members are welcome to join us for one or all sessions in this free series, but registration is required for each. The link to the online meeting will be shared in your confirmation email.
