Deschutes Public Library and The Central Oregon Nordic Club host author /explorer William L. Sullivan on Saturday, June 2, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. in the Brooks Room of the Bend Public Library. Sullivan will present a slide show of his recent travels to Europe. Books will be available for sale following the reading
During his presentation, Sullivan, a renowned author and hiking guru, shares tales of Europe's most interesting hiking trails, from Greece and the Pyrenees to Norway and the Alps. Learn what to expect at a Slovakian "hut,” where to launch a tour of the Orkneys, and where to stay on the active volcanic island of Stromboli. As always, Sullivan spices his lecture with anecdotes about local history, wildflowers, and outdoor lore. The show also features areas that serve as settings in his new adventure mystery, "The Case of Einstein's Violin."
Sullivan is the author of a dozen books, including the popular 100 Hikes series, Oregon Trips & Trails, and Cabin Fever. His journal of a 1000-mile hike he took across Oregon in 1985, Listening for Coyote, was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s 100 Books, one of the most significant books in the state’s history.
