Best-selling author Peter Jenkins to speak in Murphy. Save the date!


“Make the world your classroom.” That is what award-winning travel author, Peter Jenkins urged of students during his 2012 visit to The Learning Center! Charter School. The celebrated author, who is traveling the country working on a new book, will make a return visit to the school for a PUBLIC speaking engagement on MARCH 21. The Learning Center will be offering tickets for the much anticipated event and more details are to come so make sure you save the date.

Jenkins is the author of three New York Times best sellers along with a list of other must reads.  Walk Across America has been used in schools across the country and was the inspiration for The Learning Center’s Venture Out Program (a cross-curricular Appalachian studies program combining education with travel.  Use the category selector on the right hand column of this blog to select “Venture Out” for a more extensive description of the Jenkin’s inspired program.)

“We are so excited and honored by his exclusive speaking engagement to our school and expect a sellout crowd,” said director, Mary Jo Dyre. “Our students have been following Jenkins’ travels on his Facebook page. It has really added a new dimension to read and study about his adventures in a book and then follow his recent travels via social media.” If you would like to follow Peter Jenkins adventures please click  <<<HERE>>>> to visit his Facebook page.

We will post updates on his visit on our website at and right here on the blog.   Additionally we will be working with local Curiosity Bookstore to make copies of Jenkin’s work available to our community.
