ROBBINSTON — A reading of the 2018 Maine Literary Award winning “3 Nations Anthology: Native, Canadian & New England Writers,” edited by Valerie Lawson from Resolute Bear Press, will be held 3-5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13, at Abbe Museum, 26 Mt. Desert St.

“3 Nations Anthology: Native, Canadian & New England Writers” focuses on the northeast United States and Atlantic Canada, where people share borders, blood, and heritage. The land is disputed in places, in others the U.S. and Canada share responsibility, and Tribal Lands reside as sovereign nations within their borders. The poems, essays, and short stories in this anthology explore the things that divide, the bridges between, and the intense love of this rugged region the people hold in common.

Authors of “3 Nations Anthology” range from those for whom this book will be their first publication to a Pulitzer Prize nominee. Readers at the Abbe Museum will be Lee Sharkey, Karin Spitfire, Sarah Xerar Murphy, Jason Grundstrom-Whitney, Patricia Ranzoni, Bruce Pratt, Jeri Theriault, Sonja Johanson, Cheryl Savageau, and Carl Little.

This event is free with admission to the downtown location and will be hosted in the Community Gallery. For questions about the reading, contact Information about the book, Resolute Bear Press, and readings and events can be found at or contact Valerie Lawson, or 454-8026.
