The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents Craft Talk: Cheryl Strayed on Thursday, September 28, 2017.

NOTE: Registration is currently full. Contact the Moss Arts Center Box Office to check if availability opens.

Learn about Cheryl Strayed’s approach to writing, and engage in an informal question-and-answer discussion with the visiting author.

At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than 1,000 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail—alone. Strayed describes this trek in her #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, "Wild", which was the basis of the Oscar-nominated movie of the same name starring Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern.

Strayed is the author of the New York Times bestsellers "Tiny Beautiful Things" and "Brave Enough", as well as the novel "Torch". Her essays have been published in The Best American Essays, the New York Times, Washington Post Magazine, and Vogue. Strayed is the co-host, along with Steve Almond, of WBUR’s hit podcast Dear Sugar Radio.


Admission is free on a first-come, first-served basis. To guarantee your seat, register through the box office.
