Cheryl Strayed: Wild

There’s a reason everyone loves Cheryl Strayed. With her frank, hilarious, imminently relatable voice, she has wooed readers, including Oprah, with 'Wild', her extraordinary memoir of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. And then there’s 'Tiny Beautiful Things', her collection of “Dear Sugar” columns for the Rumpus, which established her as the Dear Abby of the digital age. She takes us on her personal journey, including her recent experience of being portrayed by Reese Witherspoon in the film adaptation of 'Wild'. She is joined in conversation by writer Megan Stielstra.
