Read ME 2021
Join us for the second of our two 2021 Read ME author talks!
Featured author Matt Cost will read from and discuss his book Mainely Power, a lively mystery novel about Goff Langdon, a private detective in Brunswick, Maine working against corrupt cops, crooked politicians, greedy millionaires and a deadly assassin named Shakespeare.
Read ME is a statewide summer reading program offered by the Maine Humanities Council and Maine State Library that gets Maine’s adults all reading the same books. 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. 2021’s featured books—recommended by Gerry Boyle—are Mill Town by Kerri Arsenault and Mainely Power by Matt Cost.
