Visiting Writers Series - Cheryl Strayed

May 3, 2012, 7:30 PM
Taylor Auditorium, Marsh Hall

Pacific University's Visiting Writers Series continues on May 3 with a reading by Cheryl Strayed.

CHERYL STRAYED'S memoir Wild, just released to critical acclaim, gives a vivid account of Strayed's 1,100-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, Vogue magazine, The Best American Essays, Best New American Voices and other publications.

This reading will take place at Taylor Auditorium on Thursday, May 3, 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
