Cheryl Strayed

Taylor Auditorium in Marsh Hall
This reading is free and open to the public.

CHERYL STRAYED’S memoir Wild, just released to critical acclaim, gives a vivid account of Strayed’s eleven-hundred-mile solo hike of the Pacific Crest trail when she was 26 after the death of her mother.  Her bitingly honest and compassionate nonfiction and fiction have won her recognition from sources as disparate as Poets & Writers and Vogue magazine. She is a Pushcart Prize recipient, the popular columnist “Sugar” on the TheRumpus.net, and a founder of the organization VIDA, Women in Literary Arts. Her essays and stories can be found in a wide array of journals and anthologies including The Best American Essays, Best New American Voices, and other publications.

This reading will take place in Taylor Auditorium in Marsh Hall on Thursday, May 3rd, at 7:30 p.m. This event is sponsored by the Department of English, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the English Club. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Professor Kathlene Postma at kathlene_postma@pacificu.edu.
