Join me as I lead this two-book series sponsored by the Maine Humanities Council. Read Me features books chosen by Maine author Monica Wood and written by Maine authors or of Maine interest. Our title in August is The Moth. The Moth presents fifty spellbinding, soul-bearing stories selected from their extensive archive (fifteen-plus years and 10,000-plus stories strong). Inspired by friends telling stories on a porch, The Moth was born in small-town Georgia, garnered a cult following in New York City, and then rose to national acclaim with the wildly popular podcast and Peabody Award-winning weekly public radio show The Moth Radio Hour.
