Read ME is a statewide community read that gets Maine adults all reading two books recommended by a well-known Maine author.
For 2019, recommending author Tess Gerritsen has chosen Paris Was the Place by Susan Conley and After the Eclipse: A Mother’s Murder, a Daughter’s Search by Sarah Perry. The season will culminate on August 29 with an episode of Maine Calling, broadcast in front of a live audience at Bangor Public Library.
Join in on the ReadME Facebook discussion group.
