This event could fill--reserve your spot with a FREE ticket: available Mar 1. North Central Regional Library brings Cheryl Strayed to the Performing Arts Center in Wenatchee -- FREE -- to share her book Wild, about hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. At 26 Cheryl Strayed was, by her own admission, a total mess. Her beloved mother had just died; she'd broken up her young marriage; she was dating a junkie and was well on her way to becoming one herself. But Strayed—who adopted that name because it fit her behavior so well—righted herself by setting out on an 1,100-mile hike up the Pacific Crest Trail, from the Mojave Desert to northernmost Oregon. How she did it, and what she learned about life, love, and survival of the emotional and physical sort, is the subject of her moving memoir, Wild.
