Lessons from the Long Trail, or How Twenty-Five Days Changed My Life

Newfane resident and writer Deborah Lee Luskin will talk about her 2016 through-hike of The Long Trail, the oldest recreational footpath in the United States.

Between August 15 and September 8, Deb and a friend walked from Massachusetts to Canada. They’d both just turned sixty and decided that a long walk would be a good way to figure out what comes next in what poet Mary Oliver calls “your one wild and precious life.” Walking and talking, these two women reached the Canadian border with new ideas about how to live more mindfully.

Deborah Lee Luskin is an author, speaker and educator. Her award-winning novel, Into the Wilderness, tells a love-story between 65-years olds who meet in Vermont and argue about the politics surrounding the 1964 presidential campaign between Barry Goldwater and LBJ. Luskin is a popular public speaker and a familiar voice on Vermont Public Radio, and a long-time educator who has delivered literature, writing and humanities programs to gifted elementary students, remedial college students, Vermont inmates, and life-long learning adults.
