Field Notes Book Group

Saturday, August 17, 2019 - 11:00am

Join the Field Notes Book Group on Saturday, August 17 from 11 to 12:30 at the Teen Zone in the Field Library for coffee, snacks and a lively discussion of this month's book, A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson.  Copies of the book will be available at the Circulation Desk.

If you've read Bill Bryson before, you know how drily funny, and how laugh-out-loud funny, he can be.  This book is a nonfiction rendition of Bryson's attempts, with his comically out of shape friend, Katz, to walk the 2100 mile long Appalachian Trail, encountering everything from the inevitable consequences of middle aged, out of shape people hiking for the first time to the weirdness of their fellow travelers, to encounters with strange animals along the trail.

Coffee and refreshments will be available.  Come and join us for what promises to be an entertaining discussion.
