Crossing Paths: A Pacific Crest Trailside Reader
Wednesday, May 18, 7:00 pm

A free event in-person event with Village Books and North Cascades Institute

The Pacific Crest Trail is not the same as it was a decade ago, nor are the people who traverse it. Editors Rees Hughes and Howard Shapiro bring the PCT to life as it is now with a host of diverse contributors who come together to share their experiences from their life-changing journeys.

After a forty-year teaching career, Howard Shapiro retired from full-time teaching in 2016. He has spent more than four decades hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and recently completed all sections. In addition to spending countless hours in the North Cascades near his home, Howard has hiked extensively in Europe, Nepal, Canada, and elsewhere.

Growing up in the wilds of Kansas, Rees Hughes found the lure of the mountains so irresistible that he traded the flatlands for Seattle, the Cascades, and finally Northern California’s Klamath Knot. Although he has hiked all over the world, the Pacific Crest Trail has been his true love for more than 40 years.
