PCTLast year, experienced hiker Wendy Johnston hiked the entire Pacific Crest Trail, all 2,700 miles from the US/Mexican border to the US/Canadian border.  She stepped outside her comfort zone and, removed from the hectic busyness of everyday life, learned lessons of courage, determination, and personal triumph along the way.

Join us for Wendy’s presentation and slideshow of photos from her amazing trek. Please sign up for this program, funded by a grant from the LSTA (Library Services & Technology Act), at the Reference or Information Desk or call 781-769-0200 x110 or 222.
