At just twenty-six, Cheryl Strayed made the impulsive decision to trek the 1100 mile Pacific Crest Trail, alone, and without any previous experience.  Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail took over twenty years to write and has since been selected by Oprah's Book Club 2.0 and released as a film by Reese Witherspoon's production company. Strayed reads from this memoir and also talks about her 2006 novel Torch and her 2012 book Tiny Beautiful Things, a collection featuring her “Dear Sugar” advice columns.
