Paul Theroux - Deep South: Four Seasons on Back Roads

Wednesday, September 30, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Theroux’s long writing career has encompassed both fiction and nonfiction and he’s produced some of the classics of travel literature, including The Great Railway Bazaar, chronicling his train trip from Britain to Japan, and Dark Star Safari, about his journey from Cairo to Cape Town. Other adventures have taken him through Patagonia and China, but only now, in his tenth travel narrative, has this award-winning writer covered the U.S. Exploring the American South, Theroux discovers wonderful music and food, as well as lamentable education systems and economic conditions. As he visits fairs and churches, gun shows and state houses, Theroux talks to everyone he encounters and paints a vivid portrait of the place today.
