Tuesday, October 8 at 5:30pm at The NewSouth Bookstore: John Turner joins us for a talk about Killing the Buddha on the Appalachian Trail

October 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

John Turner, a journalist by training, has a long relationship with the Appalachian Trail, which includes being a Trail Ambassador and member of the Georgia Appalachian Trail Club board of directors. But it’s his walking of the trail that is the subject of his beguiling book, which follows his personal journey on its pathways in search of inner peace. Killing the Buddha on the Appalachian Trail is the chronicle of what it taught him about life, about aging and learning from one’s mistakes. Come meet him and hear his remarkable yet very human story on Tuesday, October 8 at 5:30pm.
