“Ethan Casey & Bill Steigerwald: 2 Authors, 2 Road Trips, 2 Americas”

May 15, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

"Ethan Casey & Bill Steigerwald: 2 Authors, 2 Road Trips, 2  Americas"

The authors offer provocative, first-person accounts of the coast-to-coast journeys behind each of their books. In “Dogging Steinbeck,” Steigerwald proved that John Steinbeck’s classic “Travels with Charley” is so misleading it doesn’t deserve to be called a work of nonfiction. Casey’s “Home Free” is an account of the clockwise road trip around America he took during election season when he found a country “struggling through a time of confusion, economic and political distress and transition.”

Their enlightening, provocative, first-person accounts of their coast-to-coast travels are in the great tradition of American road books. Both are serious works of nonfiction by veteran journalists.

Ethan Casey (ethancasey.com) covered Asia for newspapers including the Boston Globe and The Globe and Mail of Toronto and now speaks about Pakistan and Haiti at major universities and other venues. Bill Steigerwald (TruthAboutCharley.com) is a former newspaper writer and syndicated columnist from Pittsburgh who worked at the Los Angeles Times and two Pittsburgh dailies.
