Hometown Maine: The Push & Pull of Living in Maine and Why & How People Come Back
It’s a story many Mainers are familiar with: When they're young they can’t wait to leave their hometown, but after venturing away, something calls them back. We’ll speak with the author of a book about five young women from Downeast Maine, as well as a representative from Live +Work in Maine, about the reasons Mainers sometimes leave home, but often find their way back.
