The Johann Fust Library Foundation is excited to present accomplished songwriter and author Layng Martine, Jr., who will speak in the library loggia on Friday, March 10, 2023, at 4 p.m. Layng’s story is an inspiring one. His book, “Permission to Fly,” is a captivating blend of humor, love, and humanity. In 2007, he wrote an essay for the New York Times’ “Modern Love” column titled “In a Charmed Life, a Road Less Traveled.” It was the most shared piece in the column’s history. Layng wrote about his and his wife Linda’s life since she was paralyzed in a car accident. The enormous response to that essay inspired him to write his memoir.
