An Evening with Diccon Bewes
Thursday, May 26, 6:30 PM ET
About the Event:
The land of milk and money
An outsider on the inside. For the last 12 years, Diccon Bewes has been exploring Switzerland and writing about the places, the people, the trains and the chocolate. In this humorous but insightful talk he’ll share his observations about Swissness and, with the help of some unique Swiss maps, show that there’s more to Switzerland than skis and cheese.
Diccon is a Swiss-British travel writer and chocolate lover who has lived in Bern for 17 years. His first book, Swiss Watching, became a No.1 bestseller and he has since written seven more books about Switzerland.
After the talk there will be the chance to have your copies signed by Diccon.

About the Author:
Diccon Bewes is a travel writer. A world trip set him up for a career in travel writing, via the scenic route of bookselling. After ten years at Lonely Planet and Holiday Which? Magazine, he decamped to Switzerland, where he managed the Stauffacher English Bookshop in Bern. In addition to grappling with German, re-learning to cross the road properly, and overcoming his desires to form an orderly line, he has spent years exploring Switzerland. Following the incredible success of Swiss Watching, he is now a full time writer. See his website at www.dicconbewes.com
