Cheryl Strayed is the inaugural Jack Grove Writer-in-Residence at the Library’s Hemingway House this fall. She is the author of the books Torch, Tiny Beautiful Things, Brave Enough, and the bestselling memoir Wild, and she is the host of the popular New York Times podcast Sugar Calling, in which she has profound conversations with writers such as Margaret Atwood, Amy Tan, and George Saunders.
Taking inspiration from the hit podcast, we’ll talk to Strayed about her writing, her life during the pandemic, and more. The conversation will be led by Martha Williams, the Library’s programs and education manager, and Guadalupe Hurtado, Wood River High School Senior and a summer reading program intern for the Library.
This program will be broadcast on the Library’s Livestream. No registration is required, and the conversation will be recorded for later viewing.
Strayed will also host a virtual writing workshop on Friday, November 20. To register or learn more, click here.
The Jack Grove Residency honors the memory of Jack Grove, who lived in and loved the Sun Valley area; who loved reading and history; and who demonstrated inspiring community-mindedness. We are privileged to promote creative writing and reading through this Hemingway House Residency in his name.
