Pittsfield: Travel guide authors to discuss US Route 20


Bill and Mary Lewis will present a book talk at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 10, at the Berkshire Athenaeum, 1 Wendell Ave.

"Through the Heartland on US 20: Volume 1," a historical travel guide, discusses places of significance along the 3,365 mile long two-lane highway which stretches from coast-to-coast.

The Lewises taught speech and communication in colleges in southern California before undertaking this multi-volume exploration of the United States, past and present. They visited the Berkshire Athenaeum to conduct research for the book.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum, the event is free. Books will be available for purchase.
