Read ME is the Maine Humanities Council’s statewide summer reading program offered in partnership with Maine State Library and Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance. Each year a well-known Maine author recommends two titles by lesser-known Maine authors with libraries and their patrons participating in a summer of reading and discussing the featured books. This year, Colin Woodard is the selecting author. The two books he selected are:
Lungfish by Meghan Gilliss: This debut novel is a brilliant and heartbreaking story about addiction, doubt, marriage, motherhood, and learning to see in the dark.
Night of the Living Rez by Morgan Talty: Set in a Native community in Maine, Night of the Living Rez is a riveting debut collection from Morgan Talty about what it means to be Penobscot in the twenty-first century and what it means to live, to survive, and to persevere after tragedy.
