Presentation: “Pushing the Limits of Survival - Grandma Gatewood book/hike talk"

Appalachian Trail thru-hiker & storyteller Nancy Reeder will lead a discussion of the book Grandma Gatewood's Walk: The Inspiring Story of the Woman Who Saved the Appalachian Trail and relate the experience in the book to her own recent hikes on the A.T.
Borrow the book for free from the Reference Desk.
This discussion series was funded by Pushing the Limits which is a reading, viewing and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation. 


2017 Walking with Spring March & April programs- the Macon County Public Library is an Appalachian Trail Community Supporter. Since Franklin’s designation in March 2010 as an A.T. Community, MCPL has helped build public awareness about the significant resources and economic opportunities the Appalachian National Scenic Trail brings to Franklin as an A.T. Community.

The library’s “Walking with Spring"  series of movies and programs in partnership with the Nantahala Hiking Club and the Franklin Appalachian Trail Community corresponds with thru-hiker season in Franklin and highlights the A.T., its hikers, and other outdoor activities and environmental issues.

All programs are free and open to the general public. Programs are in the library Meeting Room unless otherwise noted.
