Author reading from fathering/hiking book in Hudson, Wis.

To celebrate Father’s Day, I’ll be reading about hiking and fatherhood on Saturday, June 8, from noon to 2 p.m. at Chapter 2 Books in beautiful downtown Hudson, Wis. The readings are of the completed essays in an anthology that I’m penning, Trails and Trials: Journeys of a Father and Son. Among the book’s topics: Fathers’ fears of handling a newborn, traditional vs. nontraditional roles of a father, and fathers being nurturers. Each essay shows how hiking offers the answers to these and other complex issues of being a father. After the reading, I’ll be on hand to answer questions and sign any of my various hiking books, all of which currently are available for purchase at Chapter 2. It’ll be a great day to visit Hudson - the Raise the “Woof” Animal Walk and activities, sponsored by St. Croix Animal Friends, will be held earlier that day downtown. Chapter 2 is an independently owned and run bookstore, located at 422 Second St. in Hudson.
