Dr. Daryl Farmer reads from and discusses “Bicycling
Beyond the Divide: Two Journeys into the West.” His book follows him on his 5,000-mile
journey through the diverse populations and ever-changing physical and social
landscapes that make up America. In 1985, Dr. Farmer traveled by bicycle
through 11 Western states and the Canadian province of British Columbia. He
wrote his book 20 years later, using the notes from the journal he kept while
“on the road.” His story takes place in the context of the world of the
mid-1980s and also in the context of his current perspective. He is the
recipient of Barnes and Nobel’s Discover Great New Writers Award.
