Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail runs right through Verona. Discover what it’s like to hike the trail from author and hiker Melanie Radzickie McManus on Monday, March 5, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Verona Public Library.  Radzickie McManus, author of Thousand Miler: Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail, hiked 1,100 miles in 36 days.  In this presentation, she will take you on an “into-the-wild” Ice Age experience through Wisconsin’s forests, prairies, wetlands, farms, and towns.  Books will be available for sale and signing. Presented in partnership with Reading Group Choices and 702WI.

This presentation is part of March Mammoth, an exploration of the Ice Age world with special events for all ages at the Verona Public Library from March 1 through April 3.  The March Mammoth exhibit features real and replica fossils, including life-size replicas of a giant woolly mammoth skull and a ferocious saber-toothed cat skeleton on display.
