Why I Walked 444 Miles to Make a Memory
Andra Watkins


New York Times best-selling author Andra Watkins chose a crazy way to launch her debut novel. She's one of the only living persons to walk the 444-mile Natchez Trace as the pioneers did, and she did it with an unconventional wing-man: her 80-year-old father. Her life-changing adventure inspired her NYT best-selling memoir Not Without My Father, which chronicles their experience. She is also the author of four other successful books. Andra's presentation challenges audiences to evaluate their relationships. She gives attendees, whatever their phase in life, concrete ideas and strategies to leave inspired to Make a Memory of their own and turn "I wish I had" into "I'm glad I did."
