Hiking With Children at the Meredith Public Library

MEREDITH — The Meredith Public Library, 91 Main Street, will be hosting a presentation about Hiking With Children on Tuesday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m.

When hiker Dan Szczesny and his nine-year-old ward, Janelle, first set foot on the trail to Mt. Kearsarge in November, 2011, neither of them knew that this easy hike to one of the state's most popular mountain tops would change both their lives. But what followed was a hiking odyssey that lasted over a year as the two hikers criss-crossed the state on their way to a 225-mile epic attempt to complete a little-known hiking list called The 52 With a View. http://www.nhmountainhiking.com/hike/lists/52view.html

Dan and Janelle will be here to give a slideshow presentation on their journey and to discuss ways to enjoy hiking with children. They will also be selling and signing copies of Dan's book about their adventures called The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie.

While the book takes readers through some special mountains, the book is also a personal memoir and travelogue of two friends. This personal account of what happened when the author and his wife unexpectedly became part-time caretakers of nine-year-old twins is a wonderful meditation on the transformative power of friendship, commitment and the many meanings of family.

Dan, the associate publisher of The Hippo, is a long-time journalist and writer. He's a member of the AMC's 4,000-footer club and has written extensively about the outdoors and hiking. Most recently, he spent a month in Nepal trekking to Everest Base Camp.
