OCEAN HOUSE: Summer Author Series Presents Layng Martine Jr (Permission to Fly)

Summer Author Series

Come and enjoy an evening with Watch Hill authors, discussing their newly-published memoirs and novels. This week, Layng Martine Jr. talks about his memoir, PERMISSION TO FLY.

PERMISSION TO FLY tells the true story of boy born into a kind and happy family who grows to realize the executive world his father inhabits may not be his destiny. Thanks to his remarkable mother, Layng is given “permission to fly” early on. Armed with optimism, curiosity, creativity, determination and a wry sense of humor, he begins his amazing journey of many painful-but-educational steps and missteps. PERMISSION TO FLY is about love, raising kids, sticking to what matters and paying the price for doing that. It’s about recovering from failure and heartbreak, maintaining friendships, and it’s about how much help we all need to get anywhere good in the world. Walking Layng’s uncharted path beside him, we witness the highest degrees of love, risk, hilarity, tragedy, resiliency and success. We encounter fabulously colorful characters and experiences that propel him towards the freedom and fulfillment he craves. 

Books will be available for signature and purchase.
