A writing workshop on writing and faith with Christine Woodside.
Christine Woodside is a Connecticut-based writer and the editor of Appalachia, a journal of mountaineering and conservation. She grew up in a large family in Princeton, New Jersey, where she started reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books in the mid-1960s. She earned an American civilization degree from the University of Pennsylvania, has published hundreds of articles on history and environmental subjects, worked for years as a newspaper reporter and magazine editor, and walked the entire Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine in one season. She lives in Deep River, Connecticut with her husband. Her and their two (now grown) daughters patiently accompanied her across the plains chasing the story of her recent book, Libertarians on the Prairie.
