Bill Bryson

Best-selling writer Bill Bryson usually goes big for his books, hiking the Appalachian Trail, writing about Australia, explaining the history of everything. For his newest book, he goes small, but deep. The title says it all. “One Summer: America, 1927”. Bryson speaks at Boston Symphony Hall at 8 p.m. this Wednesday as part of Lesley University’s Boston Speakers Series. Only series subscribers ($275 to $475) can attend.
