It's Not About the Hike

The Bridgewater Public Library will host Nancy Sporborg and Pat Piper on Saturday, May 3rd at 12:00 noon. The featured program is “It’s Not About the Hike”, a presentation that is for hikers and non-hikers, people who are sedentary or active, outdoor enthusiasts and indoor homebodies, 10-year olds and 90-year olds and everyone in between.

The hour-long presentation is not about the hike; it is an inspirational and motivational program about pushing ourselves outside of our comfort zones, overcoming our fears, finding our passions and living our lives to the fullest. The talk is a multi-media presentation including movies, music and photographs. It is both humorous and touching as the speakers share about their personal lives in a way that makes the message and learning universal.

Nancy and Pat are two 50-plus year old non-hikers who climbed the 100 highest mountains in New England. Their presentation is the story of their journey. It will lift your spirits and inspire you to climb that mountain in your life.

Their book, It’s Not About the Hike, will be offered for sale after the presentation. The book contains 360 pages, over 245 color pictures, and 60 inspirational hike reports.

Nancy and Pat’s presentation is part of Bridgewater’s ongoing One Book One Community program which is currently focusing on Bill Bryson’s hiking memoir, “A Walk in the Woods”.
