Supplement Your Reading

In addition to the seven fiction titles, I’m Your Neighbor, Portland features two non-fiction titles, I Remember Warm Rain and New Mainers. Although there will not be a specific event celebrating these two books, we encourage you to read these autobiographical stories written by Maine’s teen and adult immigrants about their experiences and journeys coming to the state. On each Featured Book page, you will find our suggestions of stories to pair with the fiction books based on commonalities in themes, backgrounds or experiences.

You will also find on the New Mainers page suggested portraits from the collection that illustrate the hardships many immigrants face no matter their history or country of origin.
