A Place Called Maine:
24 Authors on
the Maine Experience


Winner of the 2009 Maine Book Award for Best Maine Themed Book

What is it like to live and write in Maine? Who better to ask than the authors who reside there? And who better to select those writers than Wesley McNair, the state’s premier anthologist?

The writers McNair gathers here include newcomers and natives from the coast to the northernmost border. Their personal stories relate everything from adventures and misadventures with neighbors, to encounters with wildlife, to weathering a cold climate, to affirmations of community and the natural world. Through their unique observations and insights they transform Maine into a state of mind.
