Marylanders of Note: Nora Roberts

Monday, October 10, 2022

There are many famous and not so famous (but important) Marylanders. Maryland is famous for many things: blue carbs, the Ravens, and Spiro Agnew. We are also home to the first railroad, first dental school, and the first umbrella factory. This course will focus on historic figures, politicians, scientists, authors, artists and more. Instructor: Joan Adams. Nora Roberts: In 1950 in Silver Spring, Marylander Eleanor Marie Robertson entered the world. Her first try at writing was during the blizzard of 1979. That set the stage for her amazing literary career. Between 1991-2002 she had 68 novels listed as New York Times bestsellers. How did her Mother Earth Years mold her into one of America's best know romance novelists? Course 23855
