Maine Voices Live-Waterville features conversations between Morning Sentinel and Kennebec Journal writers and notable Mainers. 

 

Join us for an evening with community journalist Amy Calder as we celebrate her 35 years with the Morning Sentinel on Monday, June 17 at 5 p.m. at Waterville Creates, first floor of the Paul J. Schupf Art Center. This event will feature a book signing and conversation between Amy and Kennebec Journal/Morning Sentinel editor Scott Monroe about her most memorable stories and columns.

Amy Calder covers Waterville, including city government, for the Morning Sentinel and writes a column, “Reporting Aside,” which appears Saturdays in both the Sentinel and Kennebec Journal. She has worked at the newspaper since 1988, including a stint as bureau chief for the Somerset County Bureau in Skowhegan, and has covered a variety of beats.

A Skowhegan native (who is proud to say she was born in Waterville), she holds a bachelors in English from University of Hartford and completed post-graduate work in the School of Education at University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She holds more than two dozen awards from the Maine Press Association and New England Associated Press News Executives Association. Calder lives in Waterville with her husband, Philip Norvish, a retired Sentinel reporter and editor.

Since 2009, Calder has written a weekly human interest column, “Reporting Aside,” which appears in both the Morning Sentinel and the Kennebec Journal. Comfort is an Old Barn is a curated collection of those columns, which include sketches of the colorful characters, quirky animals she has encountered, and special moments, as well as personal stories that make living in Maine special. Copies of Comfort is an Old Barn will be available for purchase and to be signed by Amy at the event.
