Book Discussion: Wild (Afternoon)

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed

Open to district residents only. Limit of 20 people.

When young Cheryl loses her 45-year-old mother to cancer, she burns a path of self-destruction that finds her divorced and using drugs to anesthetize the pain.  The thousand-mile Pacific Crest Trail beckons as a place to work out her grief and find her way to a life filled with the joy and promise she once felt.  The people Cheryl meets, the beating her body takes, and the truths that slowly settle in make Wild a journey that may shock and amaze you, but will never bore you.  Sign-up begins Monday, June 10 at the adult reference desk.  You will receive a copy of the book and discussion questions at that time.
