When Andrew Forsthoefel graduated from Middlebury College in 2011, he, like many recent grads, wasn’t quite ready to settle down. Instead, he hit the road for a cross-country trip — on foot. Armed with his backpack, an audio recorder and a sign that read “Walking to Listen,” the environmental studies major hoofed it from Chadds Ford, Penn., to Appalachia to the Mojave Desert and beyond, lending an ear to anyone with a story. Now based in Northampton, Mass., Forsthoefel appears at the Norwich Bookstore on the heels of his newly released memoir, Walking to Listen: 4,000 Miles Across America, One Story at a Time.
