Carson City author Joe Burgess will be holding a book reading Jan. 21.
Burgess’s book, “The Trip” centers around a true experience he had in 1977, a 6,000 mile kayaking excursion down the coast of Mexico with two friends.
“I always thought it was a great story to tell,” Burgess said in a radio interview.
It took him nearly 10 years to write the book before it was finally completed. It includes real accounts of what the three men experienced over four and a half months.
Burgess will be at the Browsers Corner Bookstore, 711 E Washington St., at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, to do a book reading. The event will be free to the public, though books will be an additional cost. A podcast about “The Trip” also is available at www.tantalk1340.com.
