Bill Bryson - At Home @ Sixth and I Synagogue - SOLD OUT
Oct 17 2011 7:00 pm
Oct 17 2011 8:00 pm
Bryson’s informative and genial chronicle of the evolution of the modern household might be subtitled “a short history of nearly everything in the house.” Moving room by room through his own abode, a 19th-century rural parsonage, he finds in the layout and objects a wealth of history on everything from disease to landscaping to lighting. Join us for the paperback release of this instant favorite.
Two free tickets will be provided with each purchase of the book (paperback or hardcover)
P&P. Additional tickets are $10 (or $12 the day of the event).
Prepayment is required to secure reservations. Books and tickets cannot
be held without a confirmed payment.
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT. WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING TICKET ORDERS. AND ANY BOOK ORDERS SENT WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR TICKETS, BUT WILL BE SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR AND AVAILABLE (FOR IN-STORE PICKUP OR SHIPPING) THE DAY AFTER THE EVENT.
Books and tickets already purchased may be picked up at Politics & Prose until October 16. On October 17, the day of the event, books and tickets will be taken to Sixth & I Synagogue.

If you are unable to pick up the book, please call us to arrange shipping. Although we will make every effort, we cannot guarantee the book will be signed by the author for those customers unable to attend the event.
