Default Hoagy Carmichael to speak about his book on The Grand Cascapedia in Ridgefield CT

Author Hoagy B. Carmichael will be at the Ridgefield Library (21 Governor Street location) to discuss his fly fishing book, The Grand Cascapedia — A History, on Saturday, Nov. 17, at 10 a.m.

Mr. Carmichael is a film, television and theatrical producer. He was the director/producer for Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the Peabody Award-winning series for children, at WQED/TV in Pittsburgh and produced for his own film company, Hippo Productions.

Theatrical productions include The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and a new musical called Lazy River, with a score comprised of songs written by his father, Hoagy Carmichael. Mr. Carmichael also co-manages the Hoagy Carmichael music catalog and was artistic producer of the Hoagy Carmichael Centennial Celebration, a 63-U.S. city big band tour.

Mr. Carmichael wrote and published the book Creating the Garrison Fly Rod. He has also written numerous articles for magazines and angling journals. He has fished for Atlantic salmon in places like Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Labrador, and Norway, and has fished most of the well-known rivers in Canada. He has been traveling to the Grand Cascapedia River for 27 years, where he is a founding member of the Cascapedia River Museum.
