Author Tom Zoellner is being called a modern day Woodie Guthrie in reviews for his new book "The National Road."

In it, the former Arizona resident takes to the road in search of something elusive, something a lot of us don’t seem to think exists anymore: The thing that connects us all. 

In a country torn apart by its politics, its beliefs and its vastness, Zoellner argues the answer is in the land. 

Zoellner will appear at Changing Hands bookstore for a virtual event to talk more about “The National Road” on Thursday night.
