July 17, 2014 – 7:00 pm – Main Library
Join us for an evening with inspirational speaker Jennifer Pharr Davis who in 2011 hiked, stumbled, and sometimes crawled the 2,181 mile Appalachian Trail in 46 days (an average of 47 miles per day), becoming the fastest person to hike the trail and the first woman to ever set the mark. But Jen’s story is not about records or numbers; it’s about endurance, faith, and most of all, love. She will be speaking about the many challenges and lessons that present themselves along the trail, showing slides from over 12,000 miles of long-distance hiking which she has completed on six different continents. Jen will also be answering questions about her hiking exploits. After her presentation, she will be signing copies of her new book Called Again: A Story of Love and Triumph, which Kirkus Reviews has called “an inspired exploration of the meaning of commitment.” Join us for what is sure to be an exciting and inspiring presentation from this world class athlete and wilderness adventurer.
