Bill Bryson has written on a wide array of topics from science to hiking to the English language. His latest effort tackles one season in America that has resonated through the decades: The summer of 1927.
That's when Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic Ocean, Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs and a group of bankers engineered one of the greatest catastrophes ever in the global economy.
He spoke about ONE SUMMER America 1927 at the Writers on a New England Stage program at the Portsmouth Music Hall.
