Join us Saturday, November 8th to discuss the book one reviewer described as "loose and sexy and dark as an early Lucinda Williams song." Strayed wrote the movie version with Nick Hornby; it is directed by Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyer's Club), stars Reese Witherspoon, and comes out December 5th. You KNOW you're going to want to read the book and hash out the story before the movie hits theaters!
