Book of the Month: "Driving Miss Norma" by Tim Bauerschmidt

Adults Drop-in

Join our Athens staff and others for a discussion of Bauerschmidt's tale of a cross-country road trip with his 90-year-old mother.

This 2017 memoir revolves around Miss Norma, diagnosed with uterine cancer and advised to undergo surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Instead, newly widowed after nearly seven decades of marriage, she told the doctor: "I'm ninety years old. I'm hitting the road," and took off on an unforgettable around-the-country journey in a thirty-six-foot motor home with her retired son, his wife, and their dog Ringo.

Stop by the Athens Branch to pick up a copy of the book along with some comments and questions to get you thinking about it!
