BAPL has organized a bus trip to the Chautauqua Institution to attend author, Geraldine Brooks' speaking event on Thursday, July 25. Geraldine Brooks is the author of the novels: Horse, The Secret Chord, Caleb's Crossing, People of the Book, March (which won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2006) and Year of Wonders. Registered participants will catch our chartered coach bus at the Bradford Mall (Tractor Supply area) by 11:45AM, with departure slated for 12PM. Our group will arrive at the Institute by 1:15PM and everyone can enjoy the grounds before Brooks takes the stage at 3:30PM. Following her presentation, all participants will depart by 4:45PM and return to Bradford by 6PM. Attendees may bring snacks to enjoy on the bus and are reminded to follow the Institution's latest policies regarding acceptable bags/purses for the grounds (i.e. usually clear plastic). Registered participants will be provided an itinerary and the Institution's bag policy.
