It wasn't exactly akin to scaling the Matterhorn, but for noted pedestrian Henry Fortunato, his Long and Winding Walk to Wichita was quite the amazing, and often amusing, adventure none-the-less. Fortunato will present an illustrated talk about his 240-mile trek taken in October 2012. It began at this front door in Overland Park and ended in downtown Wichita 13 days later.
