ReadME & summer lectures | Maine Public

Read ME is the Maine Humanities Council’s annual community reading program, offered in partnership with the Maine State Library and the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance. The program encourages people to read two books selected by a well-known Maine author. This year the featured author is Jaed Coffin and the books he selected are The Road to Dalton and Moon in Full. We’ll talk to the three authors – and we’ll hear their recommendations for books to read. And as always, we invite our listeners to offer their book suggestions as well.

Jaed Coffin, author of the memoirs A Chant to Soothe Wild Elephants and Roughhouse Friday; work is included The New York TimesMoth radio hour, Best American travel stories and more; contributing editor, Down East magazine; teaches journalism and creative writing at the University of New Hampshire
Shannon Bowring, author; her debut novel is The Road to Dalton; the sequel Where the forest meets the river will be released in September 2024
Marpheen Chann, author of the memoir Moon in Full; speaker; gay, first-generation Cambodian American; Executive Director, Khmer Maine
