2022 Author Talks


Offered in partnership with Maine State Library, Read ME is structured to enable even the smallest, most rural libraries to participate. All that’s required is a commitment to making each of the featured titles available to their patrons.

Program goals:

  • Connect Maine’s adult reading community through shared reading experiences
  • Support libraries in their work to provide quality adult summer reading initiatives
  • Elevate upcoming Maine Authors
