mountains

The Adirondack Park is home to the largest protected natural area in the lower 48 states--six million acres including more than 10,000 lakes, 30,000 miles of rivers and streams, and thousands of miles of hiking trails running from mountain summits through a wide variety of habitats including wetlands and old-growth forests.

Carl Heilman has spent the last 40 years hiking and photographing his beloved Adirondack Mountains. He will tell us about his new book: "The Trails of the Adirondacks: Hiking America's Original Wilderness."

Heilman will be giving an illustrated lecture on Wednesday, August 7 at 7 p.m. at the Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs. 

Tara Westover’s memoir, “Educated,” has made its way to the number one spot on the New York Times bestsellers list.

She tells her story of being a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University.
