An Evening with Bill Bryson

Best-selling author Bill Bryson is one of the country’s most beloved and prolific commentators. Known for his quirky observations and comic sensibility, he has chronicled everything from hiking the Appalachian Trail in A Walk in the Woods (named one of TIME magazine's “All-TIME 100 Best Nonfiction Books”) to capturing the zeitgeist of the Roaring Twenties in One Summer: America 1927. With more than 20 books in circulation, Bryson charms audiences with the same warmth, goofy wit and self-effacing humor that has made his work so universally appealing. Bryson’s latest book is The Body: A Guide for Occupants. A Q&A and book signing will follow the lecture.
The Watkins Lecture Series was established in 1999 by Marion Watkins Herget and Dr. George D. Watkins '44 and is named in honor of their parents.
