This is an event that was previously scheduled during the BIG RAIN a few weeks ago.
Join retired Juniata Valley High School English teacher and local author Mike Fields at the Thousand Steps for an author talk and walk. Each of his previous books in the Twin River series includes local lore and sites from the legend of Captain Jack to the historic massacre of Captain Phillips’ rangers to Edgewater Acres. They all set fictional events against real places, and, coincidentally, the most recent book in the series incorporates the Thousand Steps. His first two books won Indie Book finalist recognition in the military and terror categories.
Books will be available for you to purchase so you can get them signed at this event and all money raised will be donated to the Juniata Valley Audubon Society! Please bring cash to pay for your copies of the books you want to buy.
We will meet at the historical sign and kiosk about 300 yards above the highway to begin at 11:00 AM. Mike will sign books and talk a little about the history of the area for about an hour. Then we will hike up and back down the 1000 Steps as a group to be finished up at about 2:00 PM.
