Cheryl Strayed, "Wild"
Wednesday, we're talking to the writer Cheryl Strayed about her memoir "Wild." Strayed was 22-years-old when her mother died of cancer, and she says the loss brought her to a "most savage self." Her marriage was falling apart, she was sleeping with other men and was using heroin. She needed healing, and she found it on a grueling, 1100 mile solo hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. Strayed will be in Utah this weekend and she joins Doug to talk about facing her demons and finding her way back.
- Cheryl Strayed is part of Sundance Resort's Author Series. This Saturday, February 23rd, she'll speak at the Redford Conference Center. Tickets include lunch and a signed copy of "Wild." Lunch begins at noon and Cheryl Strayed will speak at 1:00 p.m. For more information, call 866-734-4428 or click here.
