Our summer reading, Wild, by Cheryl Strayed explores themes of self-discovery, and finding one’s place and purpose in the world. Just as Strayed charted her journey on the Pacific Crest Trail, in what ways have you mapped your life, and what have you learned about yourself, the world, and your environment throughout your journey?
