Andrew Forsthoefel Presents Walking to Listen: 4,000 Miles Across America, One Story at a Time

March 22 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

A memoir of one young man’s coming of age on a cross-country trek–told through the stories of the people of all ages, races, and inclinations he meets along the highways of America.

At 23, Andrew Forsthoefel walked out the back door of his home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, with a backpack, an audio recorder, his copies of Whitman and Rilke, and a sign that read “Walking to Listen.” He had just graduated from Middlebury College and was ready to begin his adult life, but he didn’t know how. So he decided he’d walk. And listen. It would be a cross-country quest for guidance, and everyone he met would be his guide.
