October 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm| The Filling Station Microbrewery

TADL’s book club hosted at The Filling Station Microbrewery, next door to the Woodmere (Main) Branch. Readers can look forward to a laid-back atmosphere and lively discussion of the month’s book choice, titles as varied and distinctive as the beer served up.  Books & Brewskis will meet the last Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.


The book choice for this month is A Good Hike by Tim Keenan.


The good hike : A Story of the Appalachian Trail, Vietnam, PTSD, and Love

Keenan, Tim

Summary: In 1967, Tim Keenan grew to loathe the impenetrable jungle of Vietnam during his one-year tour of duty as a combat soldier. For 47 years, he couldn’t shake his dread of the woods, until he confronted his fears head on and began a thru-hike of the 2,178.3-mile Appalachian Trail. The Good Hike is Keenan’s story of finally coming to peace with himself, buoyed by the healing powers of nature and his fellow hikers. His story weaves in the beautiful towns and mountains of the great Appalachian trail with the jungle and battle zones around Dak To, including the infamous Hill 1338. Keenan also tells a story of love. His trail partner helped him face his PTSD and cope with the trail’s intense rigors. Most importantly, she taught him how to love again.
