Maine’s summer reading program ended with an episode of Maine Calling on MPBN featuring Debra Spark and Monica Wood being interviewed by Jennifer Rooks.
Unknown Caller has been selected as the fiction title for “Read ME,” a statewide summer reading program at Maine libraries, sponsored by the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine State Library. Debra will be traveling around the state to visit some of the participating libraries and talk to readers.
