BRUNSWICK – The Maine Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club will give a presentation on New England’s scenic summits Thursday, Oct. 23, at Curtis Memorial Library.

They recently published a book titled “Mountains for Mortals: New England Scenic Summits for Hikers,” which includes hike descriptions for dozens of mountains in various settings.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be held at 7 p.m. in the Morrell Room of the library at 23 Pleasant St. Parking is available on the street and off Union Street.

A potluck dinner will be held at 6 p.m. Drinks and plastic ware will be provided; attendees are encouraged to bring a potluck item.
