"There is really no story more amazing than the story of us." – Bill Bryson

“Bryson is fascinated by everything, and his curiosity is infectious.” The New York Times Book Review

Bill Bryson is the bestselling author of A Short History of Nearly Everything and A Walk in the Woods. In this event based on his new book, The Body: A Guide for Occupants, Bryson takes us on a head-to-toe tour of the marvel that is the human body. Full of extraordinary facts (your body made a million red blood cells since you started reading this) and irresistible Bryson-esque anecdotes, the evening is guaranteed to provide a deeper understanding of the miracle that is life in general and you in particular.

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Chaucer’s
