A Good Read

Carolyn Chute

Special | 26m 27s

The hard-scrabble life of rural Maine isn't just the subject of many of Chute's works, it also describes the author's own experiences of having worked in a factory, on a farm, as a school bus driver and several other occupations. In this episode, the writer discusses what it takes to make it in Maine and what happens when a down-to-earth Mainer hits it big with a best selling novel.
