Cultural sites and traditions of the country of Georgia will be featured in the next Armchair Travelers presentation set for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17, 2016, at the Mesa County Libraries Central Library, Fifth Street and Grand Avenue in Grand Junction.
As Georgia emerged from Soviet control in 1991, the new country went through many rapid changes to become a player in Europe, if not the world. Presenter Ken Mabery, a 35-year veteran and second-generation employee of the National Park Service, will share his photos and insights into Georgia’s proud cultural traditions, the people, their ancient lifestyles, and some of the country’s cultural sites.
Last year, Mabery gave a well-attended travel presentation that focused on the diversity of Georgia’s landscapes included in the country’s new national parks system.
This Armchair Travelers event is open to the public at no charge. Seating is limited.
The Armchair Travelers series is cosponsored by Mesa County Libraries and the Grand Junction Newcomers Club.
