Bill Bryson to Tour Australia

On November 6, 2013

Bill Bryson, popular writer of narrative non-fiction, will travel to Australia to appear in a live show entitled Bill Bryson – Many a True Word, an Illuminating Interview.

For the first time live on stage, author Bill Bryson will be in conversation with Ray Martin about his life, books, travel, history and science.

His bestselling travel books include Down Under, The Lost Continent, A Walk in the Woods and Notes from a Small Island. His acclaimed book on the history of science, A Short History of Nearly Everything, won the Royal Society’s Aventis Prize as well as the Descartes Prize, the European Union’s highest literary award. He has also written books on language, Shakespeare and his own childhood in the hilarious memoir The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid.

Bryson’s most recent book, One Summer: America 1927, chronicles a forgotten summer when America came of age and changed the world forever.

"I can't wait to come back to Australia,” Bryson said. “It is always a pleasure to be there."
