Author discusses adventure on the Appalachian Trail

Jennifer Pharr Davis will discuss her book, Becoming Odyssa: Epic Adventures on the Appalachian Trail, at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 2, at Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville.

After graduating from college with a classics degree, Jennifer wasn’t sure what she wanted to do with her life. She was drawn to the Appalachian Trail, a 2,175-mile footpath that stretches from Georgia to Maine. Though her friends thought she was crazy and her mom worried about her safety, she set out alone and spent four months hiking the trail, an experience that changed her life.
