Thursday, July 17 - An evening with Jennifer Pharr Davis

In 2011, two-time Appalachian Trail thru-hiker Jennifer Pharr Davis wanted to test her limits. With the support of her husband Drew and a dedicated group of volunteers dubbed the “Pit Crew,” Jen hiked, stumbled, and sometimes crawled the 2,181 mile Appalachian Trail 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. She will speak about the many challenges and lessons that present themselves along the trail, showing images from over 12,000 miles of long-distance hiking which she has completed on six different continents. She will also answer questions about her hiking and sign copies of her book Called Again: A Story of Love and Triumph.
