Cheryl Strayed is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling memoir Wild. Strayed found herself shattered by two major life events: her mother's sudden death from cancer and the end of her young marriage. After hitting rock bottom, Strayed decided to confront her emotional pain by trekking over 1,000 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail. Wild tells the amateur hiker's tale, peppered with the colorful characters she encounters along the way, as she struggles to find inner peace and stability. The story inspired producer and actress Reese Witherspoon to bring Wild to the big screen in 2014. Cheryl's personal struggles and story of survival motivate and inspire crowds. She is a dynamic speaker, and her moving rhetoric resonates with audiences of all sizes.
