Donn Fendler Speaks at Bangor Library 

Back by popular demand…That’s the reason behind Donn Fendler’s visit to the Bangor Public Library Saturday.The author of “Lost On A Mountain in Maine” spoke to children in the morning, and adults in the afternoon.Fendler was just 12-years old when he became lost on Kathadin.After hundreds of volunteers searched for several days, he was all but given up for dead.It happened back in 1939, but all eyes were glued on Fendler Saturday as he retold his tale of courage and faith during those nine days of being lost.Fendler says he’s always fascinated by the questions he gets”The kids ask about the toad and the chipmunk and-were you scared?” says Fendler. “Where the adults asks- what did it do for you, ask about my mother, and that type of thing.”Library director Barbara McDade says the last time Fendler came to speak at the Bangor Public Library, the crowd was so large that it was hard to get everyone in the room.Saturday, it was standing room only again.Fendler also took time to sign copies of his book.
