“Upwards” Book Launch Party

October 29, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join the author, Laurie Chandler, for a book launch party for Upwards: The Story of the First Woman to Solo Thru-Paddle the Northern Forest Canoe Trail.

In the summer of 2015, at the age of 53, Laurie became the first woman to solo thru-paddle the entire 740 miles of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. Upwards is her uplifting story of finding the inner strength and faith to achieve her dream, set amid the rich tapestry of the history, wildlife, landscapes, and people of New England.

The celebration will include a short talk with the author about the NFCT and the experience of writing about her journey, as well as refreshments, and a book signing.
