RPL Book Group
Featured Book: Walking to Listen: 4,000 Miles Across America, One Story at a Time by Andrew Forsthoefel
Discussion Leader: Nancy Benjamin
Forsthoefel headed out the back door of his home in Pennsylvania with a backpack, an audio recorder, his copies of Whitman and Rilke, and a sign that read "Walking to Listen." Over the course of a year he faced an Appalachian winter and a Mojave summer. He met beasts inside: fear, loneliness, doubt. But he also encountered incredible kindness from strangers. Ultimately, this the stories of others living all along the roads of America carry this journey and sing out how a life is made, and how our nation defines itself on the most human level.
