The New England Life of Cartoonist Bob Montana at Meredith Library Tuesday

MEREDITH — The Meredith Public Library is happy to host Carol Lee Anderson as she presents her newest book The New England Life of Cartoonist Bob Montana: Beyond the Archie Comic Strip'' on Tuesday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m.

Cartoonist Bob Montana was made famous with his Archie comic strip and resided in Meredith for many years with his wife and children.

"I saw a strip that had Gunstock in it and I asked myself how many times he did this," said Anderson. "I started looking at the old 'Archie' comics and we found a lot of Lakes Region references. Many times he would include people from Meredith and surrounding towns."

Anderson decided to focus on this aspect of Montana's life for her book. Learn more about Bob Montana's life in Meredith and what influence Meredith had on his work. Light refreshments will be served and Carol will be selling and signing copies of her book.
