"A Long Trek Home"

November 4, 2009 in Ballard, Ballard Events by Amy

And you think this is cold? Imagine traveling from Seattle to the Aleutian Islands–by your own power.  Tomorrow night (11/5) local author Erin McKittrick will discuss exactly that: the year-long journey she took with her husband, Hig, in June 2007, 4,000 miles from here to the tip of Alaska.  She will read from her book, “A Long Trek Home: 4000 Miles by Boot, Raft and Ski” from 6:30 to 7:45 at the Ballard Library.  There will be a slideshow and discussion.

The aim of the trip was to raise awareness about environmental degradation, the effects of climate change, and about conservation issues.

The event is free.  Books will be available for purchase and for signing.
