Special Event at DIESEL -- Larkspur Book Club Pioneers discuss 'Deep South'
7:00pm - 8:00pm

The Larkspur Book Club Pioneers meet to discuss Deep South by Paul Theroux

Wednesday, February 17, 7 pm

This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Paul Theroux has spent fifty years crossing the globe, adventuring in the exotic, seeking the rich history and folklore of the far away. Now, for the first time, Theroux explores a piece of America, the Deep South. He finds there a paradoxical place, full of incomparable music, unparalleled cuisine, and yet also some of the nation's worst schools, housing, and unemployment rates. These are the parts of the South, so often ignored, that have caught Theroux's keen traveler's eye. On road trips spanning four seasons, wending along rural highways, Theroux visits gun shows and small-town churches, laborers in Arkansas, and parts of Mississippi where they still call the farm up the road the plantation. He talks to mayors and social workers, writers and reverends, the working poor and farming families, the unsung heroes of the South, the people who, despite it all, never left, and also those who returned home to rebuild a place they could never live without.

Aaron Reynolds is a Caldecott honoree and the New York Times bestselling author of many books for children, including Here Comes Destructosaurus! and Carnivores. He has never been a sardine or a giant squid, but he's pretty sure neither would make a good president. He lives in Chicago.
