Author Event: Jennifer Pharr Davis
On July 28th, Cranbrook Public Library will host athlete, author, speaker, and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Jennifer Pharr Davis.
The program will be held at the Manual Training School from 1:00-3:00.
Jennifer Pharr Davis has logged more than 14,000 miles of long distance trails on six different continents. In 2011, she set the overall fastest known time on the Appalachian Trail by hiking 47 miles a day for 46 straight days.
Jennifer has written articles for The New York Times, Outside magazine, Backpacker and Trail Runner and has been featured in the Washington Post, NPR’s Talk of the Nation and the CBS Early Show.
She will be sharing slides and stories, answering questions, and signing copies of her new book, “The Pursuit of Endurance: Harnessing the Record Breaking Power of Strength and Resilience”, which Kirkus Reviews calls “a captivating narrative guidebook that will inspire readers to test their own limits, on the trail and off.”
The event is free and open to the public.
