Glenn Maynard to Take Part in The Book Rack’s ‘Authors Slam’ on May 14, 2011 in Vernon
Glenn Maynard, author of Strapped into an American Dream, will join 5 other writers to participate in an ‘Authors Slam’ event, held at The Book Rack at the Shops at 30 Plaza, 435 Hartford Tpk., Vernon, CT, 06066, on Saturday May 14, from 10 to 2.
Maynard’s memoir captures America, whirling readers along a 35,000-mile trek through the 48 contiguous states in a rebuilt RV. One week after their wedding, Glenn and his wife quit their jobs, sold their cars, and set out to find America. This book details how they were able to realize this dream, and then introduces the reader to the unique people they met and the places they visited along the path.
Travel with them through 23 National Parks, Las Vegas, Mardi Gras, and dusty ghost towns. Feel the rushing wind of tornadoes and the rocking of an earthquake. Sleep on roadsides and in truck stops, shifting from state to state, risking danger in favor of a limited bank account.
It is the dream of many Americans, in all walks of life, to travel the country, but few realize this dream. Now they may do so vicariously in the reading of these adventures. Laugh along the way. Share the terror, sorrow, and humor -- strapped into an American dream.
