WILL HARLAN READING & SIGNING
Will Harlan, editor-in-chief of Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine and a longtime trail runner and journalist, will discuss his new book, Untamed: The Wildest Woman in America and the Fight for Cumberland Island. The story of Carol Ruckdeschel, a wildwoman and sea turtle expert, who is trying to save the most biodiverse barrier island off the coast of Georgia, Untamed is “the true-life saga of a brilliant, beautiful woman who became her own tall tale,” according to Christopher McDougall (Born to Run). Harlan will also present a slideshow. Harlan’s writing about outdoor adventures and environmental concerns can be found in places like National Geographic Adventure and you can read about his one-day, 72-mile Smoky Mountain run to raise money and awareness for The Canary Coalition on their web site, canarycoalition.org.
