We visited Scandinavia in January and are off to the next adventure! Leave your passport at home and join us the last Wednesdays of February and March when Carol Phelps, a world traveler since the age of three, presents two more exciting travelogues. Carol has visited over 40 countries, and with camera in hand, she’s navigated rain forests and deserts, mountain peaks and tropical islands, remote villages and bustling cities, capturing the sights, sounds, and culture of many countries. And after each engaging armchair tour, we will indulge in a delicious treat from the country we visited!
Wednesday, February 24th - ITALY
Join us for a jaunt around vibrant, historic Italy, from Rome to Venice to the picturesque Amalfi Coast. Visit the Vatican, ride a gondola, see the ancient Coliseum, and climb the Spanish Steps. See Florence, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the amazing mosaics of Ravenna. Take a horse carriage on a night tour of Rome, and stumble onto the fabled Trev Fountain, in one amazing afternoon!
Wednesday, March 30th - FRANCE
What could be better than a few romantic weeks in Paris? And from there it’s not far to the Palace of Versailles, Chartres Cathedral, the stunning castles of the Loire Valley, and famous Mont Saint Michel, which incoming tides turn into an island. At the other end of the country, the French Alps rise into Switzerland, and charming quaint Medieval towns wait to be explored. Join us for a tour of this lively country!
Legends of the Leprechauns – A Live Radio Play For All Ages
It’s not blarney! Join us for this special performance of Legends of the Leprechauns, a live radio play for all ages, performed by Heartline Theatricals. The play is based on Celtic folktales collected by William Butler Yeats and Thomas Crofton Croker. This performance is supported by Beyond the Page Endowment of the Dane County Libraries and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
This program is free and open to the public, and all ages are welcome, so no shilly-shallying! Call 798-3881 to sign up.
