New Books, New Readers is a book discussion group for adults who are new readers or who are not in the habit of reading. The program is designed for adults of all ages, backgrounds, and reading abilities from beginning speakers of English to students completing their education. Participants will read and discuss nine books chosen from the best of children’s literature to open the world of books and ideas to them through conversation. This year’s series will be LIVING WITH LITTLE How does it feel to be without food? Without shelter? How can we deal with hunger and want? What kinds of compromise are possible? How can we keep up our spirits even when we feel helpless? What attitudes are our most precious resources? Each participant receives a free copy of all nine books in the series to keep. The program is sponsored by the Maine Humanities Council.
