Announcing All Henrico Reads March 28, 2024 with Cheryl Strayed and Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail


We are thrilled to announce that All Henrico Reads, our signature author event, will feature author Cheryl Strayed, who will discuss her bestselling memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail! We invite the community to join us on Thursday, March 28 at 7PM at Henrico’s new Sports and Events Center for an in-person discussion, Q&A with the author, book sales from Book People, and a book signing. Read on to learn more about the event and how to take part in this year’s all-community read!

Our 2024 Featured Book explores themes of conservation, connection, compassion, and wellness in the natural world. It is a memoir of a young woman who, after losing her mother, seeks strength and solace during a solo hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. The book was a yearslong bestseller, selected as an Oprah Book Club title, and adapted into an Academy Award nominated film. You can pick up a copy of Wild from a library near you (or borrow a digital copy on Libby), and share your thoughts on the title at an upcoming book discussion or related program.

Find more details about All Henrico Reads at your library or on our website. Stay connected through our blog, newsletter, and social media (@HenricoLibrary on Instagram, Facebook, and X) to receive the latest event news, book lists, and ways to interact with the memoir and its themes.

All Henrico Reads is hosted in partnership with the Friends of Henrico County Public Library, Henrico County Public Schools, and Henrico County. We are excited to host Ms. Strayed and look forward to the conversations we will have with our community about her inspiring memoir.
