SAWYER FREE LIBRARY is pleased to present Best Selling Author M.L. (Matt) Buchanan, who will share details from his incredible journey by bike across the country and his newly published memoir, “Midlife Crisis on Wheels with Matt Buchman” on Saturday, October 16 from 2:00-4:00pm in the Library’s Friends Room.
USA Today and Amazon #1 Bestseller M. L. “Matt” Buchman has 70+ novels in action-adventure thrillers, contemporary and military romance, 100 short stories, and many audiobooks. Before becoming a best-selling writer, M.L. “Matt” Buchman dreamed of traveling the world by sailboat or small plane. Not once did he think about doing it by bicycle — not until he lost everything: career, the house he’d been remodeling, for the family he never had time to find, sense of self, all of it. Broke and burned out at thirty-five, he sold everything, climbed on his bicycle Junior, and together they headed out on a journey of unknown duration. His one guide? Following the setting sun west. 11,000 miles through eighteen countries. A voyage of adventure, discovery, and rebuilding a life. But mostly? A journey of discovering hope and the unexpected possibilities of the future.
Presented by the Library’s Gloucester Lyceum, this event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Copies of the book “Midlife Crisis on Wheels with Matt Buchman” will be available. Face masks are mandatory for those attending. The Sawyer Free Library is located at 2 Dale Avenue in Gloucester.
