Name: Carine McCandless and Annette McGivney on Western’s Campus
Date: October 15, 2019
Event Description:
Two award-winning writers and will be giving readings as well as a writer’s workshop.

Carine McCandless’ memoir, The Wild Truth was a New York Times Best Seller and was selected by many, including Newsweek, Amazon, and others on the Best Books of 2014 lists.  As the sister of Chris McCandless of Into the Wild fame, her memoir is about growing up in and surviving an abusive household. She also gives presentations about domestic violence and will be doing a fundraiser with the Sweetwater County Family Justice center at the Broadway Theater in Rock Springs on Mon. Oct 14 from 6-8PM.

Annette McGivney is an editor for Backpacker magazine, and wrote Pure Land:  Three Lives, Three Cultures, and the Search for Heaven on Earth.  It’s a memoir about a young Japanese woman’s journey into the Grand Canyon and her murder.  It’s a 2018 National Outdoor Book Award Winner, interweaving three different stories, that of the victim, the murderer and herself, in an investigative and introspective narrative as she examines the circumstances behind the incident.
