6:30 - 7:30 PM

Morrell Meeting Room at Curtis Memorial Library

Geared toward school-age children and older, parents, grandparents, guardians, aunts, uncles, siblings and anyone interested in better understanding their habits around personal finances.

Curtis Memorial Library welcomes one of the country's Top 10 youth money presenters,
Colin Ryan in A Comedian's Guide to Money.

For most people, personal finance is no laughing matter. Often, it is something they would rather not think about, but comedian Colin Ryan tackles this subject with humor and practical wisdom. Ryan's show blends stand-up comedy, storytelling, and pop culture to bring fun and learning to the topic of personal finance, a subject that is often considered boring or intimidating.

Colin has appeared before over 200,000 students and adults throughout the country. His presentation is appropriate for school age children and adults.

Topics covered will include...

Finding Your Passion (and Making a Living at It)
The Danger of Credit Cards
The Best Weapon Against Overspending
Saving Your Way to Your Own Success
The Money Secrets of Millionaires
How to Drive Like the Rich
Living in the Culture of Consumption

A gifted storyteller, Colin won The Moth Radio Hour's GrandSLAM in 2015, and serves as a passionate advocate for economic equality on the Vermont Commission on Women. As part of Curtis' year-long Making It in Maine financial literacy program, Colin will also be speaking to students at the Region 10 Vocational High School earlier in the day, and to Brunswick High School students on June 1.
