Thousand Miler Book Talk & Signing - Wednesday, April 26


A special presentation by Melanie Radzicki McManus, author of Thousand Miler— Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail, will be given at the Chippewa Falls Public Library as a warm-up event to the annual conference. The presentation will be at 6:30 PM Wednesday, April 26, at the Library at 105 W Central St, Chippewa Falls. 

McManus’s new book, which is being released on April 22, recounts her 36 day traverse of the IAT’s 1100 miles. While the list of “thousand milers” has increased by a few intrepid souls each year, those who carry that honor are definitely in an elite group. McManus not only did it in a very short time frame, but happens to be journalist, writer, and editor, so she put it all together in a book to whet the appetite and provide guidance to those who will follow in her footsteps, as well as providing an opportunity for those who will never accomplish the feat to share in the experience.
