Price, Trudy (1940 - )

Genre: Non-Fiction, Poetry

Trudy (Gertrude) Chambers Price is a native of The County (Aroostook). She was born in Island Falls and she grew up in Caribou.

A 1962 graduate of the University of Maine, she and her husband Ron were dairy farmers from 1966 to 1989 in Knox, Maine. For two of those years, she was, to use her words, "a reluctant teacher whose reason for teaching was to help pay the bills."

Price is the manager of the Maine Coast Book Shop in Damariscotta. She is well known to many Maine readers and writers from her prior work at the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance
