Maine Humanities Council and SMCC’s Summer Discussion Project

August 13, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

What better time than now to grapple with big questions like: Who are we? Where are we? How did we get here? Where might we be going?… and How do we get there from here?

SMCC members are invited to join the last of our 3 rich discussions grounded in readings that foreground the opportunities and challenges of life in Maine. They are designed to be an opportunity to engage with creative thinking, conversation, and fun.

The Maine Humanities Council is excited to offer this flexible opportunity to host a text-based discussion program that meets the needs of our own community, whether working independently or as part of an organization. MHC provides support in defining an important question and connects each group with a trained facilitator. We are thrilled and honored to be part of this project!

To help us get to these questions, we are honored to announce that acclaimed and local author Kathryn Miles will be joining us! Kathryn Miles is the author of four books including, most recently, Quakeland: On The Road To America’s Next Devastating Earthquake. Her work has appeared in publications including Audubon, Best American Essays, The New York Times, Outside, Popular Mechanics, Politico, and Time. She took her PhD in English and Environmental Studies at the University of Delaware and has taught in a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs.
