Called Again: An Evening with 2012 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Jennifer Pharr Davis
In 2011, Pacific Crest Trail and two-time Appalachian Trail thru-hiker Jennifer Pharr Davis wanted to test her limits. With the support of her husband Brew and a dedicated group of volunteers dubbed the "Pit Crew," Jen hiked, stumbled, and sometimes crawled the 2,181 mile A.T. in 46 days (an average of 47 miles per day), becoming the fastest person to hike the trail and the first woman to ever set the mark. And for that, she's been featured in the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR's Talk of the Nation, and the CBS Early Show.
But Jen's story is not about records or numbers; it's about endurance, faith, and most of all, love. Jen will talk about the challenges and lessons that present themselves along the trail. She will show slides from over 12,000 miles of long-distance hiking in places like Australia, Kenya, Peru, Switzerland, Scotland, Spain, Iceland, and Corsica. And she will answer questions about these and other hiking exploits. Afterward, Jen will sign 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." We hope you'll join us for what is sure to be an exciting and inspiring program with this world class athlete and wilderness adventurer.
