Thursday, November 13, 2014 – 7:00pm

Carine McCandless opens up about the family life and upbringing that contributed to her brother’s inspiring adventure and untimely end.

  By The Author

In April 1992, a young man named Chris McCandless walked into the Alaska wilderness, where he survived for more than 100 days before perishing in an abandoned bus. For over twenty years his story has captivated millions, and yet only one person knew the truth behind his remarkable journey– until now.

Through a tumultuous childhood, the McCandless siblings clung to each other amidst a chaotic home life, forming a lifelong bond and an unbreakable trust. So when Chris forged an anonymous existence on the road, Carine understood what drove Chris away from all he had known. Having to face her own truth, Carine embarked on a unique journey finding strength in the love and connection she shared with her now absent brother.

Carine McCandless is an entrepreneur, activist and mother. She has been successfully self-employed since she started her first company at the age of nineteen. As a public speaker her presentations are featured in education and corporate venues across the United States. Carine’s memoir, The Wild Truth, will be released on October 21st.

Carine is the sister of literary icon Chris Mcandless, a.k.a. Alexander Supertramp, whose life story captured the hearts of millions of people around the world. She played a vital role in the success of Into the Wild, the internationally bestselling book written by Jon Krakauer. Krakauer endorses Carine as “a gifted communicator, she is engaging, inspiring, and bracingly outspoken.” Into the Wild sold millions of copies in thirty-one languages and is required reading at universities all over the globe including the U.S., U.K., Italy, Germany, Canada and France.
