What was this book about Maryland?
December 18, 2011 5:01 PM   Subscribe

At the end of August I heard an author being interviewed on the Baltimore NPR about her book on the history of Maryland. I was in the car and couldn't write down her name or the name of the book, and I can't seem to find it listed on Amazon. Does anyone know what this book might be? In the part I heard she was talking about Maryland's history as a Catholic/Royalist haven, and the tensions this caused with neighboring Virginia. Inspired by this post on the blue.

Do you remember what time of day you heard the piece? (I work for one of the NPR member stations in Baltimore)

It was sometime in the afternoon on a weekday, probably Monday the 22nd of August. I remember so specifically because we had been out of town but my husband had to be back in B'more for something that day, and I was running errands in Towson!

Could it have been "Annapolis: City On the Severn" by Jane McWilliams?

Here's an .mp3 of the show you heard. And, here's a link to the show's page.

That is indeed it! I didn't realize it was specifically a history of Annapolis; that must be why I couldn't find it.

I would have never thought to look on the YPR archives! I'll remember that the future.
