24 May Faulkner County Library to host speaker
At 7 p.m. Monday, June 10, the Faulkner County Library will host athlete, author, speaker and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Jennifer Pharr Davis. The program will be held at 1900 Tyler St., Conway.
Davis has logged more than 14,000 miles of long distance trails on six different continents. In 2011, she set the overall fastest known time on the Appalachian Trail by hiking 47 miles a day for 46 straight days.
Jennifer has written articles for The New York Times and Outside magazine, and has been featured in the Washington Post, NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” and the CBS Early Show.
She will be sharing slides and stories, answering questions and signing copies of her
new book “The Pursuit of Endurance: Harnessing the Record Breaking Power of Strength and Resilience” which Kirkus Reviews calls “a captivating narrative guidebook that will inspire readers to test their own limits, on the trail and off.”
The event is free and open to the public.
