Local author, Jon L. Sattler, is a ski instructor, here in Park City, at the National Ability Center, and owner of Auspit, a company that makes outdoor rotisseries. Dolly’s is proud to present a compilation of his life post college graduation in his 20′s until his 40th birthday–during which he has traveled to and documented in his recently released book, Vacation Boy: Does this Count as a Career?, tales of Japan, Thailand, the Dominican Republic, France, Morocco, Senegal, Malaysia, Greece, Indonesia, Guatemala, Ecuador, China, Southeast Asia and the United States.
“Vacation Boy: Does This Count as a Career? is about taking life by the horns and riding that unpredictable bronco around the world, leaving no regrets on the table, even if the ride results in a few bruises along the way. The non-fiction memoir leads the reader into the travels and winding “career path” of the sometimes hapless, often joyful and always evolving Vacation Boy. It is less a compilation of travel stories than the sum of the parts of a life lived differently. Whether battling a cantankerous bike while riding along the Chinese border with Burma or dodging malevolent minnows and leeches in a Malaysian jungle or competing in the world’s largest BBQ competition, the humorous adventures draw readers out of their armchairs and into places they never knew were there to visit. Think Into the Wild, but without the unhappy ending.”
As always, Dolly’s is honored to host our local authors and this is bound to be an evening you don’t want to miss!
