Central Wisconsin Book Festival Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail With Melanie McManus
What's it like to hike more than 1,000 miles across Wisconsin? Find out from someone with first-hand knowledge during the Central Wisconsin Book Festival!
Author Melanie Radzicki McManus spent 36 days hiking the entire length of Wisconsin's Ice Age Trail - and in doing so, joined the "Thousand-Miler" club. During this CWBF event, McManus will take the audience on that journey with her (from the comfort of their chairs, of course) as she walked through the state's forests, prairies, farms and some far-flung small towns. A Q&A and book signing will follow the presentation.
Free and open to the public, no registration required. For more information about this and other CWBF events, call 715-261-7230 or go to mcpl.us/cwbf.
