Local Columnist And Author Speaks At Prince Memorial Library

Local Maine Author, Andy YoungAndy Young, local columnist and author of Young Ideas: Twelve Extraordinarily Thought-Provoking Essays (and 58 Others) by an Exceptionally Ordinary Human Being, spoke at Prince Memorial Library in Cumberland on Thurs., Feb. 16 at 6:30 p.m.

Since I knew my mom was a fan of his, I decided to ask her if she'd like to join me.  Andy's heartfelt and sometimes very funny stories kept us interested and entertained while enjoying light refreshments provided by the library. Despite the power outage from yet another doozy of a snowstorm affecting many close communities, Prince Library was lucky to dodge it and the room was full of admirers who enjoyed some one-on-one time with Andy before and after his presentation.

Young is now a high school English teacher in Kennebunk, after time spent in the Peace Corps and as a sportscaster across the U.S. He is the author of several columns in publications that include the Portland Press Herald and the Falmouth Community Leader. He lives in Cumberland with his family. 


The Author Talk is part of a monthly series featuring local authors who discuss their latest book, their inspiration and the writing process. For more information, please contact the library at 829-2215. The Prince Memorial Library is located at 266 Main St. in Cumberland Center and is just another reason why the town of Cumberland is such a wonderful place to live!
