LL Bean hosts a lecture series on Friday evenings from January through April. These are events run by LL Bean. They are here on the MOAC calendar to make membership aware of them. Questions should be addressed to LL Bean. These events are held in the camping department atrium. MOACers often gather for a nightcap after.

Over the course of one calendar year, journalist Dan Szczesny explored the history and mystique of New England’s tallest mountain. From dressing as Walt Whitman and reading poetry while hiking up the mountain to spending a week in winter cooking for the scientists at the observatory, Mount Washington became Szczesny’s muse.

In The White Mountain: Rediscovering Mount Washington’s Hidden Culture, Szczesny turns a veteran journalist’s eye toward exploring Mount Washington’s place in the collective consciousness of the country and how this rugged landscape has reflected back a timeless history of our obsession and passion for exploration and discovery
