On Tuesday, January 10, 2012, Calvert Library Prince Frederick will be hosting “Changing Landscapes in Southern Maryland,” the first in a four-part series of local history events. The evening will begin with a presentation on the book Changing Landscapes in Southern Maryland, produced and edited by the Southern Maryland Regional Library Association. The first twenty attendees will receive a free copy of the book. The remainder of the program will focus on a web-based tour of the county’s agricultural history produced by the Calvert County Historic District Commission (HDC). “Tourists” will learn about local history and hear about life in Calvert County in the actual words of people who shared their experiences with oral historians. The HDC plans to make audio tracks from the tour available for download as podcasts that can be used for self-guided driving tours. Both the audio and video will be available on a DVD, which will premiere during the “Changing Landscapes” event, 7:00 to 8:30 pm at Calvert Library Prince Frederick.
