{mosimage}Join North Carolina author, Jenifer Bubenik, on Tuesday, Dec. 8 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Johnston Community College Library and ride along as she recounts the tales of her solo backpacking journey from Belize to Ecuador in her new release, Thoughts From the Chicken Bus.

Armed with little more than hiking boots and pepper spray, the twenty-nine year old set out solo to Central America with the goal to push her job and relationship out of her mind. What began as a three-week restorative breathing trip soon ended up as a three-month adventure through the back jungles, active volcanoes, and desolate beaches far beyond the safety-net of Belize. Bubenik is a graduate of Clayton High School and Appalachian State University. Thoughts from the Chicken Bus is her first book. The JCC Library is located in the Tart Building on the main campus.
