Join Reference Librarian Jeff Klapes, ‘The Traveling Librarian’ for two companion armchair traveler’s journeys to Italy.

On Tuesday, March 5 at 7:00 pm, we’ll visit northern Sicily, at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, and influenced by many different cultures throughout its history. While a part of Italy, Sicily has a distinct culture, dialect, cuisine, and attitude that makes it a place apart. We’ll start in Taormina, climb Mount Etna, and follow the northern coast to Palermo, the capital, and some of the beautiful towns of the west coast.

Then on Thursday, April 18 at 7:00 pm, we’ll continue on to southern Sicily. We’ll follow the south coast from Agrigento, with its amazing assemblage of ancient Greek temples, to the stunning Baroque hill towns of the southeast, and finish up in the bustling city of Catania, in the shadow of Mount Etna.
