Young Man's Walk Across America


Andrew Forsthoefel set out at age 23 to walk across America, east to west, 4000 miles, with a sign on him that said, "Walking to Listen." The public is invited to the premiere of "Walking Across America: Advice to a Young Man."  This hour-long audio program, co-produced with Jay Allison, tracks Andrew's epic journey.  It's a coming-of-age story, and a portrait of this country - big-hearted, wild, innocent, and wise.

Wednesday April 3, 7:30pm, at Woods Hole Community Hall. Admission is free.

With Jay Allison, Atlantic Public Media, and WCAI.

On Morning Edition, WCAI's Dan Tritle talked to Andrew about his trek.
