The Writers on a New England Stage series welcomes bestselling nonfiction author Bill Bryson, with his exuberant new work chronicling one truly fabulous American epoch, "One Summer America, 1927."

His evening in The Music Hall’s Historic Theater in downtown Portsmouth includes an author presentation and on-stage interview with Virginia Prescott, host of New Hampshire Public Radio’s “Word of Mouth.” The series’ house band Dreadnaught will play live music during the one hour event.

One of the most admired nonfiction writers of our time, Bryson is the author of such bestselling books as "A Walk in the Woods," "I'm a Stranger Here Myself," "In a Sunburned Country," "A Short History of Nearly Everything" (which earned him the 2004 Aventis Prize), "The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid" and "At Home."

For each 1-2 tickets sold, the purchase of a book voucher ($28.95) is required. Vouchers can be redeemed on the night of the event for a signed copy of Bryson’s discussed work, "One Summer."
