Book Club August/September book selection:
Night of the Living Rez by Morgan Talty
"Night of the Living Rez delivers stories that combine the otherworldly with the everyday in ways that startle and sing. Morgan Talty portrays Maine and his Penobscot characters in language and images both beautiful and inventive. With equal parts humor and haunting, this book will linger."
—Toni Jensen, author of Carry
Book Club October/November book selection:
Almost Maine by John Cariani
Book Club December book selection:
Downeast: Five Maine Girls and the Unseen Story of Rural America by Gigi Georges
"In this remarkable book, Gigi Georges explores the lives of five girls in rural Maine over four years. She catalogs their dreams, longings, and awakenings with sensitivity and tact, revealing both nuanced aspects of character and larger points about the complicated world in which these girls live. Downeast is important, arresting, and engrossing.”
— Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author
