Hikes Through History

Hikes through History with author Alison O’Leary at the Bridgewater Public Library on Tuesday, August 27th at 6:30 p.m.

Have you ever wandered through the woods and wondered who had been there before you?

In Massachusetts, many parks and trails have been carved out of historical sites. Author Alison O’Leary, an award-winning journalist and coauthor of the Appalachian Mountain Club’s new guide Best Day Hikes Near Boston, will share her favorites with you through this hour-long program.

Using maps and historic photos, she describes several day trip destinations with historical significance and interesting features in Massachusetts. Special effort is made to include varying levels of difficulty and a variety of scenery. A book signing will follow the program.

Alison is a longtime journalist, public speaker, and the author of three books, including Inns and Adventures: A History and Explorer’s Guide to New Hampshire, Vermont and the Berkshires, coauthored with Michael Tougias. Their other coauthored nonfiction book is So Close to Home: The True Story of an American Family’s Fight for Survival in WWII. For more information see www.alisonoleary.com.

The event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bridgewater Public Library, is free and open to the public.
