About the Series
In this series, members of the UMaine community will speak about their experience of reading, their awakening as readers, their past and current best books (and maybe even their worst reads). They’ll venture far outside their scholarly fields and bring us into the world of their personal reading. Join us as we explore the role of reading in our lives!
