A Conversation with Michael Vitez

Free Library of Philadelphia - Parkway Central Library

1901 Vine Street Philadelphia PA 19103
  • Wednesday July 18th 2012

Matthew Miller had just pedaled up a mountain pass. He was 20, a member of the University of Virginia triathlon club. He was on top of the world: in love, with dreams of attending medical school. Then, cycling along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, tragedy struck. The real story is not what happened, but what happened after.

Pulitzer Prize-winning Philadelphia Inquirer journalist Michael Vitez shares with you the incredible, humbling, miraculous story of Matt’s survival and recovery in his new book, The Road Back. It is a story of grace and grit, and of an America that shines – families, community, individuals and institutions. The story is as gripping as it is inspiring.
