Northwoods Author Tours Book By Bike
Brian Benson grew up in the Northwoods and has written a memoir about a bike trip he took from Wisconsin to Portland Oregon. Now he’s touring with his book around the Midwest…also by bike.
In his book Benson describes how after college, unable to decide on the one thing he wanted to do with his life, he took a backpacking trip through Central America. As he tells WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski, in Guatemala he fell for a woman named Rachel…who led him down the cycling path.
Benson’s tour of his book Going Somewhere…continues Saturday with a reading at the Mercer public library.
