A Maine author shared words of wisdom with a group in Bangor Tuesday – wisdom inspired by a moose. Susan Poulin, who’s also a humorist, read to folks at the Bangor Public Library from her new book, “Finding Your Inner Moose: Ida LeClair’s Guide to Livin’ the Good Life”.Ida LeClair is Poulin’s fictional personality. Poulin, who grew up in Jackman, says the book is written in a self-help style that uses humor to make some serious points. It also share’s Ida’s insight on what you can learn about life from a moose, which she says turns out to be quite a bit. “Mostly it’s filled with good old-fashioned common-sensical advice. Kind of like how I was raised by my parents in Maine.”Poulin says you don’t have to be a Mainer to appreciate the book. She also writes a weekly humor blog, called www.justaskida.com.
