The Past Tense and the Present (is still) Tense: Travel in Northern Greece, Albania and North Mecedonia
Brown Bag Program presented by Dr. Richard Leary
Wednesday, October 16, Noon -1:00 pm
Research & Collections Center, 1011 E. Ash St., Springfield
Free and open to the public
Richard Leary will tell of a trip that covered an immense period of time, from the Neolithic to the political and economic tensions of the present. He visited Greek, Roman and Byzantine ruins, churches and museums--witnessing the results of 500 years of Ottoman oppression as well as Nazi and communistic oppression. Enjoy tales of lovely scenery, good food, and great wines. Join us for a taste of the history and scenery… but not the food and wine.
Bring your lunch and join us for a different speaker and topic on the third Wednesday of each month. Brown Bag Lectures are held at the ISM Research & Collections Center at 1011 E. Ash St. in Springfield. The Collections Center must be accessed via the gate on Ash St. and approached from 11th Street or further east due to the rail closure at Ash and 10 ½ Streets.
