Speaker: Melanie Radzicki McManus, Author

Author McManus will summarize her recent book. For thirty­‐six days, Melanie McManus hiked 1,100 miles around Wisconsin, through forests, prairies, wetland and farms, past geologic wonders carved by long ago glaciers, and into the neighborhood bars and gathering places of far‐flung small towns.

Melanie Radzicki McManus has worked as a news reporter at a Green Bay radio station, as a press secretary at the Wisconsin State Capitol and as editor of two local publications. Since 1994, McManus has worked as a freelance writer and editor, specializing in travel and fitness.
