Author visit with Andrew Och, March 2 @ 2PM

Friday March 2, 2PM.  Androscoggin Community Room

Andrew Och is the author of “Unusual for Their Time: On the Road with America’s First Ladies” (Volume One & Volume Two).

Andrew spent over a year traveling to nearly every location that helped tell the stories of every First Lady of the United States of America for the C-SPAN series – “First Ladies: Influence and Image.”  He covered Martha Washington through Michelle Obama, and visited with people and places all across the country.  From Colonial Williamsburg to Stanford University, he was given an ALL ACCESS – BACKSTAGE PASS to some of the nation’s most treasured collections and historical landmarks.  He spent time in libraries and museums – homes and schools – birthplaces and cemeteries – train stations and churches.  No stone was left unturned, nor door left unlocked, in his unique and historical journey to learn everything he could about these women before, during and after their time in the White House.  His research and travels continue with current First Lady Melania Trump.

He is an award-winning television and multimedia producer who has traveled the world with his pen, paper and camera.  A Radio/Television and Film graduate from the University of Maryland, Andrew started his production career in music – recording and touring with his band in the 80s & 90s.  Soon after that he added his camera to the mix, and all the pieces fell into place.  A storyteller from a young age, Andrew enjoys the art of communication, and will go anywhere in the world for more knowledge, greater understanding and amazing stories.  He is a true documentarian of life.
