Read ME is a statewide program presented in partnership with Maine State Library that gets Maine’s adults all reading the same books—by Maine authors and recommended by Maine author Paul Doiron. The Auburn Public Library will make available the two books recommended by Doiron(one fiction—River Talk  by CB Anderson, one nonfiction—Settled in the Wild: Notes from the Edge of Town by Susan Hand Shetterly ) and will host book discussions on these titles.

On July 31st at 9:30 am, the public is invited to discuss Settled in the Wild. Naturalist Susan Shetterly looks at how animals, humans, and plants share the land?observing her own neighborhood in rural Maine. She tells tales of the locals (humans, yes, but also snowshoe hares, raccoons, bobcats, turtles, salmon, ravens, hummingbirds, cormorants, sandpipers, and spring peepers). She expertly shows us how they all make their way in an ever-changing habitat.
