Meet Bill Bryson in Frederick, MD, March 5 and 6, 2017

Published Jan 26, 2017

Yes, that Appalachian Trail hiker [HE DIDN'T HIKE THE ENTIRE AT!] that we all love and/or hate [HE WAS NASTY TO SOUTHERNERS!] will speak and/or risk his life by appearing in Frederick, Maryland, on March 5th and 6th at two different locations.

The author of the beloved/despised book, A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail, which was recently turned into a movie that no self-respecting/critical hiker had anything good to say about, Bill Byson has a way with words.

Please Note: Squirt guns and water balloons will not be allowed inside the venues. Thank you.

Bryson's invitation comes from the Frederick County Public Libraries outreach known as Frederick Reads. They pitched this event with (ready?) William "Bill" McGuire Bryson thusly:

Bill Bryson is a best-selling American author of humorous books on travel, the English language, and scientific subjects. His works include, A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail, A Short History of Nearly Everything, as well as In a Sunburned Country.

You cannot lose by accepting their kind invitation. It's free and open to the public.
