Brad Herzog is the author of more than 50 books, including several celebrated memoirs about his journeys through small-town America, which the American Book Review has described as “the new classics of American travel writing.” His first travelogue, States of Mind, was featured on Oprah and The Today Show and reached the top of the Amazon bestseller list. He lives on California’s Monterey Peninsula. 

Join us as we discuss DETOUR 2020: A Cross-Country Drive Through America’s Wrong Turns— a trip through America’s existential battlegrounds. Piloting a sputtering camper that serves as a metaphor for a struggling country, Herzog takes the reader from coast to coast—to Jamestown and Appomattox, Hazard and Dodge City, Metropolis and Roswell, the Little House on the Prairie and the Grand Canyon. Each stop allows examination of America’s wrong turns—entrenched and emboldened racism, conspiracism, science denial, uncivil discourse, misplaced idolatry, malignant leadership.
