A man who spent the National Park Service Centennial hiking one million steps on trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will share the book he wrote about the experience during a slate of upcoming readings this month.

Readings will be held:

3:30 p.m. Friday, July 14, at the Hudson Library in Highlands.

7 p.m. Wednesday, July 19, at the Macon County Public Library in Franklin.

Ben Anderson’s book, Smokies Chronicle: One Year of Hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, draws from the observations he jotted in a 30-year-old notebook while hiking more than 400 miles on all or part of 71 park trails. The book includes 40 personal narratives describing Anderson’s experiences along the trail, as well as information about the park’s history, flora and fauna.
