Author Talk and Signing: Leonard M. Adkins


Author Talk and Signing with Leonard M. Adkins

leo2014-210-expJune 7th from 2 – 4 p.m.

Leonard M. Adkins, the “Habitual Hiker,” will be joining us at the Scholar on June 7th to discuss his 30th and newest book Along the Appalachian Trail: West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Adkins’ book contains a plethora of historic images and accounts from the collections and memories of both early and modern hikers of the Appalachian Trail, many of which have never been published. Also “included are the glimpses of American history the trail passes by, the pathway’s early (and later) supporters and hikers, and original locations that have been rerouted off of today’s trail.” Following his talk, Mr. Adkins will be autographing and selling copies of his book until 4:00 p.m.
