Jennifer Pharr Davis to discuss adventures on the Appalachian Trail

Jennifer Pharr Davis will at Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville this Saturday to discuss her book, Becoming Odyssa: Epic Adventures on the Appalachian Trail.

The book chronicles her adventures, experiences and challenges during her first A.T. thru-hike just out of college in 2005.

Davis became a local celebrity in 2008 when she set the women's speed record by completing the entire length of the 2175-mile Appalachian Trail in just 57 days, 8 hours and 35 minutes - averaging 38 miles per day - with no rest days!

Blue Ridge Books is at 152 S Main Street in Waynesville, and the book discussion will begin at 6 p.m. Click here for more information.
