You are cordially invited to a reading & signing by Ben Batchelder of his recently launched American adventure, Borderlands USA: Or, How to Protect the Country by Car, presented by the op.cit. books and Earthdog Press, in Santa Fe, New Mexico on Friday, July 10th from 6-7pm.
Come travel with Ben on a journey in which, circumnavigating the Lower 48 by silver-plated Beetle, he explores the remote borders as closely as possible, without getting arrested.
Along the way he gets to know his country again and meets many unheralded borderlanders, whose stories of hard work, patriotism, and perseverance go well beyond the usual headlines. Instead, he finds that the nation’s edges reveal much about its core – and in the process comes home to a place of gratitude.
