Tattered Cover booksigning

When: Tue., Nov. 18, 7 p.m. 2014

In writing what would become the bestseller Into the Wild, Jon Krakauer worked closely with Carine McCandless, sister to protagonist Chris. She asked that he not include their childhood in the book, a request Krakauer honored. McCandless has now released that story with The Wild Truth, which delves into the trauma of the McCandless household. In a Nov. 9 interview with Outside, she says, "This is just the truth ... the answers to all the 'why' questions that have been lingering about why Chris felt the way he did, why he left the way he did, and what pushed him to the extreme." Learn more at 7 tonight, when McCandless holds a booksigning at Tattered Cover (2526 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, tatteredcover.com). — Edie Adelstein
