Wednesday, October 13th at 1:30 p.m. - Non-fiction Book Club: In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson. In person.
(NOTE: Earlier time to avoid school parking congestion.)
Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature breaks out (i.e. A Walk in the Woods). In a Sunburned Country is his report on what he found in Australia. Australia has the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest, driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet. The result is a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity. Bryson takes his readers on a rollicking ride far beyond that beaten tourist path. Austrailia has found in Bill Bryson its perfect guide.
Multiple copies are available at the library, ready for pickup!
