Elizabeth’s Engagements and Media

A giant thank you to all the folks who have invited me to tell my “Outpedaling” story. What good are authors without readers, after all?

Upcoming Engagements

Book Signing at the Appalachian Trail Museum in Central PA
2:00 p.m.
Saturday, October 31, 2020

1120 Pine Grove Road

Come meet the author and have her sign your copy of “Outpedaling ‘The Big C’: My Healing Cycle Across America”. The book includes Elizabeth’s adventures on the Appalachian Trail during her 1991 thru-hike as The Blister Sister. The museum will have books for sale. Learn more here.

Please Note: Due to the pandemic, the talk will be outside, weather permitting. Masks are required and social distancing will be observed. In the event of inclement weather, the event will move inside to the adjacent Ironmasters Mansion.
