Lyceum lecture – Jennifer Pharr Davis, The Inspiration of Creation
March 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Spending time in the wilderness nurtures a greater understanding of ourselves and our world. In this program, Jennifer talks about how the trail has challenged, changed, and deepened her understanding of herself. She encourages others to revel in nature and embrace the wonder-filled opportunities that await them.
Jennifer Pharr Davis is a hiker, author, speaker, and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year who has covered over 12,000 miles of long distance trails on six different continents. In 2011, Jennifer covered the 2,185-mile Appalachian Trail in forty-six days, eleven hours, and twenty minutes, maintaining a remarkable average of forty-seven miles per day. By doing this, she claimed the overall (male or female) fastest known time on the “A.T.” and became the first woman to set the mark. Jennifer has written five books, including three North Carolina guidebooks and two hiking memoirs called Becoming Odyssa and Called Again. She has also written articles for the New York Times, Outside magazine, and Trail Runner, and has been featured in the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Daily Beast, NPR’s Talk of the Nation and the CBS Early Show.
