Biernacki’s Book Based on Travels & Volunteer Work in Africa


Mark Biernacki, former DeKalb City Manager, has done a lot of traveling since his retirement, and he’s documented his adventures in a travel blog called “Paint the Map.” Many people have told him that they enjoy his travel blog and mentioned that he should write a book some day. So he did.

Bernacki recently published, “A House for Books: Volunteering and Adventure in the Shadow of Kilimanjaro,” a nonfiction narrative account of his experiences while traveling, volunteering, and climbing mountains in Tanzania, Africa.
