First Book Club

 

Join us for discussion on the content of the book Fireproof and faith response to the author Eric Wilson on Thursday, November 19 at 5 p.m. in the Fellowship Room.

 

December’s book title is A Walk in the Woods:  Rediscovering America written by Bill Bryson. Back in America
after twenty years in Britain, Bill Bryson decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. The AT offers an astonishing landscape
of silent forests and sparkling lakes—and to a writer with the comic genius of Bill Bryson, it also provides
endless opportunities to witness the majestic silliness of his fellow human beings. For a start there’s the
gloriously out-of-shape Stephen Katz, a buddy from Iowa along for the walk. Despite Katz’s overwhelming
desire to find cozy restaurants, he and Bryson eventually settle into their stride, and while on the trail they
meet a bizarre assortment of hilarious characters. But A Walk in the Woods is more than just a laugh-out-loud hike. Bryson’s acute eye is a wise witness to this beautiful but fragile trail, and as he tells its fascinating history,
he makes a moving plea for the conservation of America's last great wilderness. An adventure, a comedy, and
a celebration, A Walk in the Woods has become a modern classic of travel literature. Be sure to pick up a copy today and join us for the discussion!
