Cheryl Strayed to talk about ‘Wild’ at Chapman University

Join the Pacific Crest Trail Association on Sept. 29 at Chapman University to hear Author Cheryl Strayed discuss her New York Times bestselling memoir, Wild: From lost to found on the Pacific Crest Trail.

We are looking forward to meeting Chapman University students and faculty who will be exploring the importance of being wild and in the wilderness.


Before the event, join Liz Bergeron, PCTA Executive Director & CEO, John Crawford, PCTA Board Chair, Mark Waters, PCTA’s Associate Director of Philanthropy, fellow PCTA supporters and PCT enthusiasts at the food truck rally from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Attalla Piazza. Mark and John will be giving out PCTA materials and talking about the PCT at two tables just outside the auditorium.

The event, which is open to the public, will take place at 7 p.m. in the Chapman Auditorium, Memorial Hall. The University is at One University Drive, Orange, CA 92866. Doors open at 6 p.m., seating is first-come, first served.

After Strayed’s talk there will be an interactive discussion. This will be a good opportunity for some of PCTA’s Los Angeles-area supporters to come together and celebrate the PCT.

Full driving directions, parking information and a full campus map also are available.
