HARDWICK — The Jeudevine Memorial Library welcomes Author Kathy Elkind at the Jeudevine Memorial Library on Monday, June 3, at 6:30 p.m., to read from and discuss her book, “To Walk is to See it,” about the joy of long-distance walking.

In 2018, Kathy Elkind and her husband decided to take a year in Europe and walk the 1,400-mile Grande Randonnée Cinq (GR5) across The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. Walking day after day for 98 days brings sickness, accommodation struggles, language barriers, and storm-shrouded mountains in the Alps.

Kathy Elkind is a long-distance walker, writer, and eater. Along with her husband, she has walked the GR5, the Anda­lusian Coast to Coast Walk in Southern Spain, and parts of the Cammino Mater­ano in Italy.

The event is free and open to the public. The library is located at 93 North Main Street. For more information, call (802) 472-5948.
