It’s not often that a woman unexpectedly finds herself bicycling solo through southern Africa and forging her own path through foreign lands—and life, but this is exactly what happened to Heather Andersen. Heather will share her story about following her dream despite society and nearly everyone she loved questioning her safety—and sanity. By trusting her intuition and the kindness of strangers, she was able to see southern Africa up close and personal, much more intimately than on any safari.
Heather’s memoir I Never Intended to Be Brave: A Woman’s Bicycle Journey Through Southern Africa has won four book awards. Her presentation will include a reading and a slideshow of photos from her southern Africa travels. Books will be available for sale ($15) and signing.
