Author Andrew Och to visit library

Author Andrew Och will be at McArthur Library at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 26 at 6:30 to discuss his second book on the First Ladies of the United States. “Unusual for Their Time: On the Road with America’s First Ladies, Volume Two” picks up the where his first book left off, with Edith Roosevelt, wife of President Teddy Roosevelt. It concludes with Melania Trump, current First Lady.

In 2012, Och began travelling the U.S. to unravel the stories of every First Lady. He is an award winning television producer and the researcher behind the C-Span series, “First Ladies: Influence and Image,” which aired in 2013-2014 to acclaim.

Och’s background as a historian and author blend with his travel experiences to make his talks both educational and entertaining. McArthur Library will be one of only four stops during his tour of Maine. Events at McArthur Library are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
