Book Club @ North Adams Library
May 25 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Book Club @ North Adams Library | Seaman | Ohio | United States

Join the North Adams Library Adult Book Club on Thursday, May 25 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson. Borrow a copy of this title at the library desk in hardback, paperback or audio book, or download an eBook from the Ohio Digital Library.

God only knows what possessed Bill Bryson, a reluctant adventurer if ever there was one, to undertake a gruelling hike along the world’s longest continuous footpath – The Appalachian Trail.

The 2,000-plus-mile trail winds through 14 states, stretching along the east coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine. It snakes through some of the wildest and most spectacular landscapes in North America, as well as through some of its most poverty-stricken and primitive backwoods areas.

With his offbeat sensibility, his eye for the absurd, and his laugh-out-loud sense of humour, Bryson recounts his confrontations with nature at its most uncompromising over his five-month journey.

An instant classic, riotously funny, A Walk in the Woods will add a whole new audience to the legions of Bill Bryson fans.
