‘And So I Run’ reading at City Lights

‘And So I Run’ reading at City Lights

Local author Anne Jobe and editor Christine Reed will host a special reading at 3 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva. 

Jobe is one of the authors in “Blood Sweat Tears,” a collection of short stories by women, hikers and runners about the experience of being in a female body on trail.

Jobe's story, “And So I Run,” is a reflection of how she approached aging in a 50+ female body with curiosity and vitality by spending time in nature and nurturing body and mind as she prepared for Outdoor 76's Naturalist Trail Run.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the bookstore at 828.586.9499 or click on
