Date & Location: Thursday, Feb 15, 6-9 pm, Curtis Memorial Library, 23 Pleasant St, Brunswick
When two new hiking companions went on a day hike of Katahdin in 1985, they had no idea they were starting a 28-year, 2,100-mile adventure. Author, speaker, photographer and avid hiker Jeff Ryan’s book it, Appalachian Odyssey, has delighted readers who enjoy reliving the adventure through a refreshing blend of history, photography and humor. Born and raised in Maine, Jeff grew up in a family that relished time outdoors and he has certainly carried on that tradition. He has hiked 9,000 miles in the U.S. and is still going strong. In the past year and a half he has traveled the U.S. in a 1985 VW camper, sharing the story of Appalachian Odyssey in hundreds of venues nationwide. His presentations combine terrific storytelling and 30 years’ worth of trail AT photos to create a memorable evening. Potluck dinner will start at 6pm (please bring a dish to share, help us be green and bring your own cup, plates and silverware). Presentation at 7pm. Free and open to the public.
