Talk:Bill Bryson

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

I do not understand why this page was deleted as "not notable". Bill Bryson is a well-known author who has written more than 20 books, many of them best-sellers. Millions of his books have been sold in the U.S. and translated into dozens of foreign langauages. He has won many awards for his writing on travel, language, science and history, including: 2010 Educational Writers Award; 2005 President's Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry; Author of the Year at the British Book Awards; and he has also been awarded honorary degrees by numerous universities. In 2006 the mayor of Des Moines awarded Bryson the key to the city. There are also several pages at Conservapedia that mention Bill Bryson and/or quote him in their references, please see: Gettysburg Address (references Bill Bryson), Des Moines (mentions that The Life and TImes of the Thunderbolt Kid, Bill Bryson's memoir of growing up in Des Moines, was a 2006 bestseller), Anthony Comstock (references Bill Bryson) and Ellis Island (quotes Bill Bryson). So I do believe that this particular page was deleted in error and would respectfully ask that it be reinstated. Thank you - Taj 16:17, 20 August 2011 (EDT)
