This is The Island Reader’s fourteenth edition. The theme for this year is Whatever Floats Your Boat. The editorial team encouraged islanders to capture the wit and whimsy that is so important to embrace when facing the harsh realities of living on one of Maine’s outer islands.
In the foreword, The Island Reader editors said: Here you’ll find the subtle or, sometimes, blatantly obvious wit and lightheartedness that are essential for living on any one of Maine’s unbridged islands. As islanders, we rely on our wit to get us through the day. What can make island wit so special is that we can find it in the most unexpected and unusual places. You’ll also find our islanders’ more serious side in the mix.
The Island Reader is available free of charge in hard copy or PDF format. But donations are gratefully accepted to support the work of Island Outreach.
