Cheryl Strayed

“Trusting yourself means living out what you already know to be true.” – Cheryl Strayed

In her life as well as her writing, Cheryl Strayed is an example of how to keep the faith when it seems like all has failed. In her bestselling memoir Wild, Strayed offers harrowing and hilarious stories from her solo 1,100-mile trek on the Pacific Crest Trail and the personal journey that led her there. In her popular (and unorthodox) advice column “Dear Sugar” on The Rumpus, she encourages her audience to live large, love hard and be brave enough to break their own hearts, and she offers radically empathetic advice as co-host of the WBUR spinoff podcast Dear Sugar Radio. She is also host of the New York Times podcast Sugar Calling, featuring her conversations with renowned writers. Strayed’s Wild was adapted into an acclaimed film starring Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern. She is also author of the bestselling books Tiny Beautiful Things, Brave Enough and the novel Torch. Her essays have been published in The Best American Essays, The New York Times, Washington Post Magazine, Vogue, Salon, The Sun and elsewhere.
