MEREDITH — Innisfree Bookshop, in the Mill Falls Marketplace, Meredith is pleased to announce that Lakes Region historian; Carol Lee Anderson will be signing of her latest work The New England Life of Bob Montana: Beyond the Archie Comic Strip, on Saturday, December 7 from 2-4 p.m. All are welcome.
Carol Lee Anderson's latest book focuses on Bob Montana creator of the Archie comic strip and one of America's greatest cartoonists. He always considered himself a true New Englander. Filled with the antics of the rambunctious teenagers of the fictional Riverdale High, Montana's comic strip was based on his high school years in Haverhill Massachusetts.
At the height of his career, he lived as a beloved resident in the quaint picturesque town of Meredith in the heart of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. For nearly thirty years, he was considered an extraordinarily respected contributor to the community. Drawing from the Yankee humor he saw around him Montana deftly included local scenes, events and characters in the puns and pranks of Archie's comic-strip life. Join historian Carol Lee Anderson as she takes readers beyond the Archie comic strip and tells the story of the remarkable New England of Bob Montana.
