Whitefish Review will host author Antonia Malchik at Casey’s Friday, May 31, for a reading and discussion of “A Walking Life” (Hachette Books, 2019), a new book about freedom, one step at a time.
“Even though humans and our predecessors have been bipedal walkers for at least six million years, we take this seemingly arbitrary motion for granted,” Malchik said. “Walking is essential to our physical health and creativity, to children’s brain development, to mental well-being throughout our lives, and to our understanding of our place in the world. Being able to walk places is fundamental to freedom.”
Malchik’s essays and articles have appeared in The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, Aeon, BuzzFeed, and many others. Formerly a journalist in Austria and Australia, she lives in Whitefish with her family.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with live music from one-man-band, Todd Cowart. Malchik will take the stage at 7 p.m. In addition to reading from her book, Whitefish Review founding editor Brian Schott will join Malchik for a lively discussion about writing and walking. A book signing by the author will conclude the evening, in addition to more live music.
