I've made passing reference to the Maine Readers' Choice Award a couple of times... I'm a member of the 2014 Reading Committee. Here's the skinny:
"The Maine Readers’ Choice Award, officially established in 2013 by the Maine State Library and the Maine Library Association, recognizes the best in adult fiction published in the United States the previous year. The aim of this award is to increase awareness and reading of literary fiction. The Maine Readers’ Choice Award honors books that exhibit exceptional writing and a compelling story that encourages reading and conversation among individuals and in Maine’s communities."
Been wondering about the books under consideration for the 2014 Maine Readers' Choice Award?
Wonder no more!
