Cheryl Strayed 

When: Mon., April 2, 7 p.m. 2012

You're 22, and your world has just imploded: Your mom is dead, your grieving family disperses, and, finally, your marriage collapses. What do you do? Make like Forrest Gump and, well, start walking. Four years after losing everything, Cheryl Strayed impulsively took to the Pacific Coast Trail, alone, with no prior experience, embarking on a 1,100-mile hike from the Mojave Desert through Washington State. It was "an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise" that she saw through to reality, and her memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail captures every step. At Books, Inc. (1760 4th St., Berkeley) on Monday, April 2. 7 p.m., free. 510-525-7777 or BooksInc.net
