Paper has shaped Maine’s economy, molded individual and community identities, and affected Maine’s environment. The Executive Director of the Maine Historical Society discusses the Society’s exhibition “Making Paper, Making Maine,” which examines the historic transition taking place in Maine’s paper industry, and asks, "What’s next for Maine’s economy?"

Guests:  Steve Bromage, Executive Director, Maine Historical Society

Donna Cassese, Managing Director Wood Resource Strategy at Sappi North America
