“When you try to define ‘Maine’ there’s no one thing that can, which is why it’s neat to find all of these legends and stories about the culture and spirit of Maine is and how it has gotten to where it is today,” said author Earl Brechlin in a story I did on him last year. Joseph  Coté will read aloud  from Brechlin’s book through Zoom from 11 to   12 p.m.FMI: Details
