Join us Thursday, June 8th at 7:00pm for a reading with Glenda Reed!

Join MSAB Artist Initiative Award Winner, Glenda Reed, reading from her in-progress memoir about hitchhiking on sailboats halfway around the world. Five years ago Glenda Reed set out to sail around the world. Having lived on a sailboat in the San Francisco Bay for the first twelve years of her life, she had navigated California’s coastal waters, but never left sight of land. More than a decade after she moved on shore, the open ocean called to her. She didn't have the money, the boat, or the skills to circumnavigate on her own. So, as a twenty-six-year-old woman, she decided to hitchhike on other sailors’ boats. Her memoir, Navigation, follows her journey halfway around the world.

Glenda Reed is a writer, artist and adventurer. She's received funding from the Jerome Foundation, the McKnight Foundation, and the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund among others. Her work has appeared in Creative Nonfiction and The Best Travel Writing. Reed is also a winner of The Moth StorySlam. Glenda currently lives in Minneapolis and sails little boats on Lake Harriet.

Glenda Reed is a fiscal year 2016 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
