Michael Brien, a 17-year adjunct faculty member at Southern New Hampshire University has been selected as a scholar for the New Hampshire Humanities Council’s 2007 book discussion program, “What is New Hampshire Reading.” This year’s theme is “Speculate: a new past, a different present, an out-of–this-world future.”

Brien teaches sociology, literature and composition for SNHU’s Laconia Center. He holds an M.F.A. from the University of Iowa’s Writers Workshop and also has taught at Notre Dame College and Plymouth State University. He has coordinated community poetry readings and writing workshops, performs as a musician and songwriter, and has been publishing his short fiction for more than 30 years.

Susan Farber, coordinator of the council’s series, has called the selected scholars “the most important ingredient in the success of this program: You are the catalyst that opens and guides deep discussion among the participants.”
