It all started with the self-entitled column in the Frederick High School Newspaper, “Ask Tay.” A mailbox stuffed with notes from advice-seeking teenagers, all eagerly awaiting Tay Moore’s response.
The route 40-raised, ’07 Frederick High graduate decided to become an author of Moore Memoirs, detailing his crazy, unbelievable Frederick anecdotes. This debut is, Even Moore Memoirs, the second installment of the trilogy.
“I wrote my book because I would always tell these stories to people and nobody believed crazy things like this happen. I think Fred is a unique place where only some things happen and we love like 4th of July in Baker’s Park or the Frederick Fair fashion show. It highlights pivotal points in my life growing up and being raised in Frederick and with all the stories I put my own comedic twist on it.” – Tay Moore
Moore believes the love of reading can change a nation. His self-coined hashtag, #MakeAmericaReadAgain, embraces the sentiment that community exists in reading and sharing stories with one another. Discovering someone else has undergone a similar experience that can be retold with insightful humor is the connection that Moore Memoirs promotes. His favorite short stories in the book tug between “You Don’t Got The Juice Like that” or “B.B. Bullets Don’t Got No Names.”
Tay expects readers will have a few nostalgic chuckles. To budding young (black) authors, Tay says: Stay true to your art and your story. Even Moore Memoirs can be purchased on major book publishing platforms like Amazon, Kindle, and Google. Support local authors!
