In 2011, Jennifer Pharr Davis completed the fastest thru-hike of the 2,181 mile Applachian Trail in 46 days, for an average of 47 miles per day. Davis, who is the first woman to ever set the record, was named 2012 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year for her efforts. On Friday, August 16 at the Downtown Library, Davis will be signing copies of her new book Called Again: A Story of Love and Triumph, which Kirkus Reviews has called ‘an inspired exploration of the meaning of commitment.” During her talk, she will discuss the many challenges and lessons that she encountered while hiking the legendary Appalachian Trail. She will also share photos from the over 12,000 miles of hiking she has completed on 6 different continents. 7pm. Free.
