Amy Calder, author of Comfort is an Old Barn, will be at Lithgow Library to discuss her book on Saturday, May 6, at 10 a.m. in the Community Meeting Room
Amy Calder is an award-winning newspaper reporter and columnist who covers primarily Waterville city government, as well as everything from fires to accidents, murders and standoffs.
She started her 35-year career at the Morning Sentinel in 1988 and for several years was bureau chief for the Somerset County Bureau, in Skowhegan, before moving to the Waterville office.
In addition to covering the news, she writes a weekly human interest column called Reporting Aside, which appears Saturdays in both the Sentinel and Kennebec Journal. The columns include sketches of the colorful characters and quirky animals she meets on the beat, as well as personal stories about growing up in Skowhegan.
Comfort is an Old Barn is a curated collection of those columns, published this year by Islandport Press.
As with all of Lithgow’s events, this event is free and open to the public.
