Meet the author: Phil Brown

LAKE PLACID — Phil Brown, journalist and author, will give an Adirondack paddling presentation at two locations this coming week.
Brown, editor of the Adirondack Explorer newsmagazine, will give a slide show based on his guidebook “Adirondack Paddling: 60 Great Flatwater Adventures,” which he published in conjunction with ADK. This will be held on Saturday, July 20 at 8 p.m. at ADK’s High Peaks Information Center, located at Heart Lake in Lake Placid. This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, contact 523-3441 or visit adk.org.
Brown will also give the program on Monday, July 22 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Keene Valley Library Summer Lecture Series. He will talk about a variety of paddling experiences in the Adirondacks, as well as his recent legal experience: the Shingle Shanty Paddling Case, a trespassing suit filed against him in 2010 by landowners seeking to close Mud Pond, Mud Pond Outlet and Shingle Shanty Brook to the public. The Keene Valley Library is located at 1796 State Route 73. Admission is free. For more information, call the Library at 576-4335.
