Remembering John Gould’s
work with lots of laughs
If you love Maine and you love humor, you can get a taste of both at the Steep Falls Library at 11 a.m. Monday, March 20.
The library is featuring a collective review of the work of the late John Gould, satirist, essayist and keen observer of human nature. Gould’s daughter, Kathy Christy, will share her experiences growing up.
