Join local author Chris Lemig as he reads from and discusses his new memoir, which is the harrowing and sometimes beautiful story of a man who lost his mind only to find it again, halfway across the world.
Join Ted Engelmann, an American War veteran, as he tells the story of how he returned two small diaries to the family of a North Vietnamese woman doctor, who died in South Viet Nam. Engelmann also shares personal slides during the presentation.
Storey’s memoir is a hilariously harrowing story of hiking the 2,663-mile Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada with her husband, Porter, a hospice doctor in a career crisis. In their fifties, they carry Porter’s homemade ultralight gear to climb and descend the steep California mountains, trudge across the searing Mojave Desert, kick steps up icy slopes in the High Sierra and ford rapids swollen with snowmelt. For 20 miles a day, they walk deeper into the wilderness of love, nature and the question, “Who am I?”
