Summer Reading

Jun 18, 2014

Where do you read in the summertime? Maybe it's at the beach? Or on a boat? Perhaps you prefer lounging in a hammock in the backyard. But just as importantly: what you will you read this summer? This year's crop of books by Maine authors is superlative. And there are lots of other novels, biographies and nonfiction books generating great buzz. The question before you is how to choose? Today on Maine Calling, we turn to three people who might be referred to as professional readers for their help. But we won't stop there. We want to hear about the books you've recently read that you just can't wait to tell people about, and which books you thought were overrated.

Host Jennifer Rooks speaks with:

  • Heather Davis, executive director of The Telling Room.
  • Josh Bodwell,  executive director of the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance.
  • Bill Lundgren, writer, blogger and bookseller at Longfellow Books.
