This year’s program will kick-off on Friday, June 3rd, with a special episode of Maine Calling.

Every summer, Read ME gets Maine adults all reading two books recommended by a well-known Maine author. This coming summer, recommending author Christina Baker Kline has chosen Sigh, Gone by Phuc Tran and Beneficence by Meredith Hall.

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
