Bill Bryson

Laxson Auditorium
BUY TICKETS: $25 Adult | $23 Senior | $15 Youth | $10 Chico State Student

Multiple best-selling author Bill Bryson has become one of the world’s most beloved and prolific commentators, finding delight in the minutiae of travel and the subtleties of culture. He has chronicled everything from hiking the Appalachian Trail in the immensely popular A Walk in the Woods—named one of Time magazine’s “All-TIME 100 Best Nonfiction Books” to his return to the United States from the UK in I’m a Stranger Here Myself. His acclaimed book on the history of science, A Short History of Nearly Everything, won the Royal Society’s Aventis Prize as well as the Descartes Prize, the European Union’s highest literary award. His latest lauded book, One Summer: America 1927, chronicles a forgotten summer when America came of age and changed the world forever. With a unique comic sensibility, “Bryson could write an essay about dryer lint or fever reducers and still make us laugh out loud,” says the Chicago Sun-Times of the man known for his quirky observations.
