MWPA is partnering on MHC’s statewide community read

Starting this year, the MHC and Maine State Library are joining up Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance to make Read ME even better. The Read ME summer reading program has always aimed to elevate the work of up-and-coming Maine authors–in part by enriching the ways we bring together established Maine authors with folks just getting their voices out. We are excited to deepen our relationship with the vibrant community of Maine writers through this partnership. 

“MWPA is happy to join with MHC and the Maine State Library on the Read ME program! We have long admired this program in which each year one wonderful Maine writer picks two Maine books (and two writers!) to focus on in the coming year through events and reading groups at participating libraries throughout the state. Maine is lucky to have so many writers who live here and are inspired by this place in all kinds of ways, and this program helps us all discover new work.
