Discovering the Greek Islands
Wednesday, December 13th, 2017 | 7 p.m. | Free

The stunningly picturesque Greek islands have inspired mankind back to the time of Homer. This is nature at its most dramatic, visual best. Deep blue and turquoise seas contrasted by dramatically rugged coastlines, plunging cliffs, golden sand beaches, isolated coves, live volcanoes, and memorable sunsets. The human touch is equally attractive with characteristic “sugar-cube” architecture and blue-domed churches, gravity defying white-washed monasteries, photogenic windmills, crumbling fortresses, and villages that spread like white tissue paper atop hills. History has left a footprint as well with archeological sites from ancient Greek times and crusader fortresses to be explored. Come join Reid Coen of Imprint tours on this visual “cruise” through the highlights of the Dodecanese and Cycladic islands.

One Family's Quest to Save Their Animals & an Ancient Way of Life
Wednesday, January 10th, 2018 | 7 p.m | Free
Featuring remarkable images of nomadic life in the jungles and mountains of north India, author and New York Times photojournalist, Michael Benanav, invites you along on a visual journey with the Van Gujjars – a tribe of forest-dwelling nomads – as they trek with their herds of water buffaloes into the Himalayas on their annual spring migration. Michael traveled with one nomadic family for 44 days, over busy roads and silent trails, across sacred rivers and high alpine passes, herding buffaloes with them, sharing their food, sleeping under their tents, and becoming much closer to them than he ever expected. He came to know his companions well – their joys and their troubles, their hopes and fears for the future, their personal dramas and their perspectives on living in balance with nature. The slide show, and Michael’s new book, Himalaya Bound: One Family’s Quest to Save Their Animals & an Ancient Way of Life, offer an intimate glimpse into a rarely seen world, an age-old culture, and the modern forces that threaten it.
