Jamie Rooney, author of "Black to Blue" will tell her story ~ Thursday, April 28 at 6:00. A full time police officer for the York Police Department in York, Maine for over 16 years, Rooney shares her story in her debut book. It is the story of Rooney's hard life and triumph against the odds. After a childhood surrounded by violence, drugs and poverty, she left with a trash bag full of clothes and never looked back. She chose the path that led to a career in law enforcement. She has devoted her entire career to working, supporting and empowering those less fortunate. The book is an empowering story of survival and creating your own destiny. Rooney has ties to our area. She lived in Jackson, Maine from the ages of 12 to 17 and graduated from Mount View High School in Thorndike. There will be an opportunity to purchase Rooney's book for $15 and have it signed after the talk. Published by BookBaby in February, the book is graphic, with a suggested audience of age 16 and up.
