North Central Regional Library is hosting Tessa Hulls, a writer and outdoorswoman, to present 'She Traveled Solo: Strong Women in the Early 20th Century'. Hulls will be at the Wenatchee branch on December 18 at 6:30 and the Peshastin branch on December 19 at 6.

"Tessa will be talking about her experience taking a 5,000 mile solo bike ride from southern California to Maine," said Amanda Brack, adult services manager. "Over the course of that ride she heard the same thing, all the time, every day, that 'Women can't travel alone'."

Hulls' began researching that concept and studied women who made solo treks as explorers, mountaineers and even a circus performer. She will present her research of females in history who defied expectations at both libraries. Hulls' presentation is part of the Humanities Washington program.

"We love partnering with Humanities Washington to bring speakers and experts from across Washington state to come present in our libraries," said Brack.
