Adventures in Reading

Join us for a discussion of the memoir, "Just Passin' Thru: A Vintage Store, the Appalachian Trail, and a Cast of Unforgettable Characters," by Winton Porter. From "In this historic setting — a store on the Appalachian Trail called Mountain Crossings — the characters . . . are the real-life stars of the author's new life as a backpack-purging, canteen-selling, hostel-running, bandage-taping, lost-child finding, argument-settling, romance-fixing, chili-making man of many faces . . . All are united by two things: the author's story-capturing talent, and whatever it is that lures them to attempt (or conquer) a 2,200-mile path that climbs and plummets from Georgia to Maine." Please either have read the book or listened to the audiobook before the meeting. Register by calling the library at (717) 732-4274.
