E.B. White and Maine

Maine occupies a special place in my heart. It is in Maine that my husband and I bought our first house, sixteen years ago. Real estate makes every foreigner a true American. Since we moved from coast to coast twice when my children were younger, Maine symbolizes home for each of us.
For anyone who loves the pine State I recommend Michael Sims’s essay in the latest NYT Book Review.
Celebrating 60 Years of ‘Charlotte’s Web’ is a tribute to the beloved book and to E.B. White, a man who wrote about Maine with particular affection.
