Adventures in Reading

Walking to ListenJoin us for a discussion of the book, Walking to Listen: 4,000 Miles Across America, One Story at a Time, by Andrew Forsthoefel. From "Following graduation from Middlebury College, 23-year-old Forsthoefel hatched a plan to leave his mother’s home in suburban Philadelphia and walk until he spent all his money or hit the Pacific Ocean, whichever came first. Guided by his literary heroes Rainer Maria Rilke, Khalil Gibran, and Walt Whitman (whose democratic spirit is a major influence here), Forsthoefel began traveling west with the bare minimum for shelter, a sign reading “Walking to Listen,” and the vague idea that his trip would be 'like a graduate program in the human experience.'" Please either have read the book or listened to the audiobook before the meeting. Register at the library or by calling the library at (717) 732-4274.
