Over the last 20 years Gunn’s work has appeared in countless books, websites and publications including People, Wend, Adventure Sports Journal, Adventure Cyclist, USA Today, and the New York Times. In 2005, Gunn quit his 14 year career as staff photographer for the Nevada Appeal and rode his bicycle 26,000 miles through 33 countries, over three years.

Since his return in 2008, he has toured with a multimedia presentation entitled “Soulcycler.” The visual presentation is about his journey. He is also working on a book by the same title. Recently, Gunn cycled in Oman and The Islamic Republic of Iran to enact “The Wheels of Peace Project”, in which he exchanged letters and artwork between the children of America and the children of Iran.

This presentation will conclude the Adult Summer Reading program, “Escape the Ordinary.”

“Your Knowledge and Discovery Place” the Carson City Library, is open seven days a week, 11 a.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. The library is at the corner of Roop and Washington Streets. For more information call 775 887-2244 or checkout our website at www.carsoncitylibrary.org
