DC Refined has chosen Jeffrey Ryan’s Appalachian Odyssey book signing event as one of top 7 things to do in Washington, DC for the week of July 11th.

Tuesday, July 12

Jeffrey Ryan Book Signing: Stop by Thos. Moser Georgetown Showroom for the first stop on Jeff Ryan’s five-month tour for his new book Appalachian Odyssey about his 28-year journey hiking the Appalachian Trail, which he says encourages setting goals, chasing dreams and achieving them one step at a time. Traveling in his 1985 Vanagon wrapped in the Appalachian Odyssey book cover, Ryan will also stop at 30 L.L. Bean stores from Maine to Colorado to discuss hiking the Appalachian Trail that runs from Maine to Georgia. He hiked each trail one at a time with each section of the book presented as a self-contained story, modeled loosely on Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. Thos Moser Showroom, 1028 33rd St NW, 6 p.m., free
