MEREDITH — The Meredith Public Library, 91 Main Street, will host a presentation on Hiking with Children on Tuesday, June 17 from 6:30-7:3 p.m. When hiker Dan Szczesny and his nine-year-old ward, Janelle, first set foot on the trail to Mt. Kearsarge, neither of them knew that this easy hike to one of the state's most popular mountain tops would change both their lives.

Dan and Janelle will be here to give a slideshow presentation on their journey and to discuss ways to enjoy hiking with your children or grandchildren. Dan will be selling and signing copies of his book Buffalo and Tough Cookie, about his and Janelle's hiking adventures after the presentation. Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
