“Living and Dying With COVID-19: The Maryland Stories” Goes Live!

Per our recent Press Release, “The Global Z Recording Project is pleased to announce that it has launched a project of historic importance to all Marylanders titled, ‘Living and Dying With COVID-19: The Maryland Stories.” We have partnered with 15 libraries across the state of Maryland. With funding provided by Maryland Humanities, we purchased, tested, installed, delivered, and trained library staff on the use of audio production equipment. Marylanders may visit participating libraries and record personal stories of how COVID-19 has impacted and continues to impact their lives. Their voices and stories will become part of the Enoch Pratt Free Library’s Digital Maryland and Maryland State Archives collections where they will be available to benefit all of mankind. In addition, feature stories will be distributed with the assistance of National Public Radio flagship station, WYPR. Special thanks to our pilot partner, the wonderful staff at Urbana Regional Library.
