Join photojournalist, author, and speaker Tom Poland as he revisits disappearing traditions in his book, The Last Sunday Drive:
Mom, Dad, and the kids would head out to see the countryside. An ice cream treat usually waited at day’s end. Back in the Burma-Shave days, mom and pop drive-ins and gas station biscuits fed folks. Cheap gas filled cars, and people made Sunday drives through a land where “See Rock City” barns, sawdust piles, and trains and junkyards gave them plenty to see.
Presented by Gwinnett Library, meet Tom Poland on Sunday, April 5 at 3:00 pm at the Suwanee Branch, 361 Main Street, Suwanee, GA 30024. Free and open to the public. Books will be available for sale and signing – cash or checks only.
