Oprah Winfrey selected Wild as the first book for her Oprah’s Book Club 2.0, and the memoir has been optioned for film by Reese Witherspoon’s production company. Strayed has published award-winning stories and essays in the New York Times Magazine, Allure and Elle to name a few.
Maile Chapman is the author of the novel Your Presence Is Requested at Suvanto, short listed for the Guardian First Book Award and a finalist for the PEN Center USA literary award in fiction.
A book signing for both authors and reception will follow the talk. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit our website or call 507-3459.
