Mill Town by Kerri Arsenault, Read by the Author
On Small-Town America, How It’s Changed, and Why It Matters
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Kerri Arsenault narrates Mill Town, her examination of Mexico, Maine, the town she grew up in, uncovering stories of corporate greed and malfeasance, communities torn between needing mill jobs and struggling to stay healthy, and so much more. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss Arsenault’s narration and how her passion comes through with just the right amount of sincerity and caring. She never overdoes her heartbreaking depiction of the price a community must pay because of a corporation that cares only about the bottom line.
