Book Signing for Pennsylvania Wilds

Mukaiyama Room of the Frame-Westerberg Commons
Friends of Hanley Library and Friends of Bradford Area Public Library to Sponsor Presentation and Book Signing for Pennsylvania Wilds
The drama of Pennsylvanias Allegheny National Forest unfolds over millions of years, not in decades or even centuries, writes Lisa Gensheimer in Pennsylvania Wilds: Images from the Allegheny National Forest (Forest Press, 2006). It is set in motion by a unique chain of geologic events that will shape the landscape and all human history that follows.
That history will come to life in a public presentation and book signing on Wed., April 11, at 7 p.m. at the University of Pittsburgh-Bradford in the Mukaiyama Room of the Frame-Westerberg Commons when Gensheimer and photographer Ed Bernik recap their 18-month journey through the forests past and present. Listeners will come face-to-face with wildcatters and lumber barons, conservationists and archaeologists as they take a virtual tour of one of the last wild places in the East.
Pennsylvania Wilds: Images from the Allegheny National Forest has earned numerous awards, including the top award of excellence from the Pennsylvania Federation of Museums and Historical Organizations. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
The illustrated program will be of interest to book lovers, conservationists, recreation enthusiasts, historians, and the general public. A book signing with the authors will follow. The program is being hosted by The Friends of the Hanley Library and The Friends of the Bradford Area Public Library.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information about the book and Forest Press, a division of the Allegheny National Forest Vacation Bureau, visit www.theforestpress.com.
