Friends of the Newport Cultural Center Library will host local author Jeff Ryan for a book signing of his memoir “Appalachian Odyssey”, on Saturday, April 29th at 11 AM. “Appalachian Odyssey” is a memoir, outlining the Appalachian Trail trek and the lessons he learned throughout. Modeled loosely on Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales,” Ryan treats each section as a self-contained story. The book touches on the trail’s history and the mental aspects of doing the trail. More than 75 color photos offer additional inspiration. Ryan was born and raised in Maine, where he grew up exploring the inlets and islands off the Maine coast. As an adult, Ryan adopted hiking as his favorite mode of exploration. In 1983, he went on his first long-distance hike, a six and half month adventure on the Pacific Crest Trail. Upon his return to Maine, Ryan climbed Maine’s highest 50 mountains in one year. In 1985, Ryan’s friend, Wayne Cyr, joined him for a one-day hike on the Appalachian Trail that inadvertently began their 28-year adventure.
