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.
Strayed will lead a one-hour writing workshop to inspire participants to write the stories they have burning inside of them. The workshop is open to people of all writing levels and experience. Strayed will give a short presentation, then guide participants through writing exercises, then conclude with a question-and-answer period with participants. This webinar-style workshop will be held on Zoom, and registration is required.
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.
