PM Book Club
Wednesday, April 3
7:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Location: Friends of the Shorewood Public Library Program Room
The PM Book Club is a great opportunity to talk about what you’ve read, learn something new, discover new books, and meet new friends. Join us this month as we discuss Thousand-miler: Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail by Melanie Radzicki McManus.
In Thousand-Miler: Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail, readers will learn about the history and development of Wisconsin's Ice Age National Scenic Trail and the geologic wonders it showcases, as they trace Melanie McManus's footsteps thru-hiking it twice. While sharing her story of what it was like to hike 1,100 miles of Wisconsin forestland, prairie, wetlands and farmland, McManus also shares the stories of thru-hikers she encounters along the way. Their collective tales shed light on the motivations of thru-hikers, how they accomplish the feat (everyone does it differently), and what the various trail segments and trailside communities are like. They will also recall the various funny, somber, and heartwarming moments that occur when hikers' paths intersect with those of ordinary Wisconsinites going about their daily lives.
