On Thursday, October 23, 2008, Authors Ron and Nancy Chase will give a presentation on hiking the scenic mountains of New England. Ron and Nancy are AMC Maine Executive Committee alumni and will share their more than 30 years of hiking experiences, especially in Maine. They have recently published a new book entitled ‘Mountains for Mortals: New England Scenic Summits for Hikers’ including hike descriptions for dozens of mountains in various settings. Here’s a great opportunity to learn more about hiking the mountains of New England and the hard work it takes to write an extensive guide book. Come prepared to get an infusion of enthusiasm for appreciating the view from the summit!

The location is at the Morrell Room, Curtis Memorial Library, 23 Pleasant Street, Brunswick, ME: parking is available on the street and off Union Street. Dinner at 6 pm, presentation at 7 pm. Attendees are encouraged to bring a potluck item and their own dinnerware (plate, utensils etc.). Drinks will be provided and plastic-ware will be available.
