UALR’s Anthropology Club, Donaghey Scholars Program, the Departments of Rhetoric and Writing and English will sponsor a reading by Tanner Critz, author of “End to Ending: An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker’s Story” at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, in Room 123, Ross Hall. A book signing will directly follow. The event is free and open to the public. Critz lives in Little Rock, with his wife and two sons. He is the owner and head instructor of Unity Martial Arts. He began a literal and figurative journey during his senior year as a Donaghey Scholar at UALR in 1995. First, however, he had to convince his professor that spending six months hiking the Appalachian Trail qualified as research. He spent two years researching the 2,000-plus mile-long trail and saving money for food and equipment. Although the project would take Critz out of college for an entire semester, his professor approved, which led to his book. sep2   kb
