Presentation of a year long hiking adventure!

Join us tomorrow, Thursday-July 17 at 7pm to hear Dan and Janelle talk about their hiking memoir,
The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie

They crossed the state on their way to a 225-mile epic attempt to complete a little-known hiking list called The 52 With a View. A list of mountains in New Hampshire under 4000 feet, that offer a fine view, created by The Over The Hill Hikers (Sandwich, NH). These two friends share their inspiring story, fit for all ages, reminding us we are simply capable of great things. 

After the talk, there will be a book signing. In the back of each book you will find a 52 With a View list and hiking log! (Books available for purchase, $10).
