"One Book Bernardsville" - Camping Equipment

"One Book Bernardsville," featuring Bill Bryson's "A Walk in the Woods," continues into October with a program all about camping equipment. On Wednesday, October 22 at 7:00 pm, Katherine Harris and Ryan Farrell will give an overview of essential backpacking gear, including different types of backpacks, sleeping bags, cooking equipment and trail food.
Both Ms. Harris and Mr. Farrell are experienced backpackers. They will bring different types of backpacking and camping equipment with them and discuss the pros and cons of each.  They will also provide a list of gear to take on hikes, both short and long. There will samples of some tasty gorp (also known as trail mix) for visitors to taste. 

This is the first annual "One Book Bernardsville," and “A Walk in the Woods" was selected for its broad appeal and its humor as well as its information on hiking, geology, plant life and animal life. There are still a couple of events scheduled in this book celebration. Detailed information on all the events is available at All the programs are free. To sign up for a program, go to or call 908-766-0118.
