Crystal-Lee Quibell will interview author, Aspen Matis on how writing about her most traumatic experience for the New York Times Modern Love column led to a book deal and her best selling memoir – Girl In The Woods.
Aspen Matis is the best-selling author of the memoir – Girl In The Woods. After being raped on her second night at college, Aspen Matis dropped out. Trekking into the desert, Aspen left her sheltered suburban life behind, searching for a way to heal. Inspired by the beauty and turmoil enveloping her on the trail, the author wrote poems, personal accounts, and dispatches from her tent. After moving to New York City, she published a popular account of her experiences in The New York Times’ Modern Love column to outstanding praise, which led to this memoir. She now lives in Greenwich Village, where she’s finishing her degree at The New School and working on her next novel. You can find her on her website at www.aspen-matis.com
