Jennifer Pharr Davis, author of Becoming Odyssa, the One Book One Community read for the spring in the Town of Bridgewater and on the campus of Bridgewater State University, will discuss her book on Thursday, May 22 at 7 p.m. in Boyden Hall's Horace Mann Auditorium on the university campus. An endurance athlete, speaker, author and owner of the Blue Ridge Hiking Co., she became the overall record holder on the Appalachian Trail by hiking its 2,181 miles in 46 days, traveling an average of 47 miles a day. Her book, however, is not about records or numbers - it is about endurance, faith and love. The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required. A book signing will follow her talk.
