Nonfiction Book Discussion

Monday, October 6, 2014 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
We'll meet at the library to discuss Pilgrim's Wilderness by Tom Kizzia.

In 2002, “Papa Pilgrim” Bobby Hale, his wife, and fourteen children journeyed from Texas to homestead in Alaska, resulting in a legal battle with the National Park Service. Though the family held on to local sympathy, journalist Tom Kizzia decided to dig deeper. Pilgrim’s Wilderness is his account of a modern pioneer family’s journey and their disturbing secrets living on the fringes of American society.
