The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - Emily Holling­shead

We have one more travel night planned be­fore sum­mer, and it’s a big one! Brock Har­ring­ton will be shar­ing sto­ries and pic­tures from his trav­els in south­ern Africa, Sri Lanka, In­dia, and South­east Asia! Mark your cal­en­dar and join us from 6:30 – 8 pm on Tues­day, May 17.

The li­brary has lots of other re­sources for plan­ning a trip, or just day­dream­ing about trav­el­ling the world, both in our travel sec­tion and among our non-fic­tion DVDs. You know that travel guides aren’t the only way to ex­plore the world with books, though, if you came to our last travel night, you heard me talk about all the nov­els that made me want to go to Great Bri­tain, but there are stacks of books out there wait­ing to give you glimpses into other places and cul­tures. If you like mys­ter­ies, check out Lau­rie R. King’s Mary Rus­sell series, which fol­lows a re­tired Sher­lock Holmes and his part­ner all over the world just af­ter the First World War. If you’re in­ter­ested in Africa, try Chi­ma­manda Ngozie Adichie’s nov­els, or in­tro­duce your chil­dren to At­inuke’s Anna Hi­bis­cus books. Cu­ri­ous about In­dia? Try Arund­hati Roy or Sal­man Rushdie. Even bet­ter, ask our staff for some­thing spe­cific, or pull up Nov­eL­ist through our web­site, tell it where you’d like to read about, and let it bring you a whole list of sug­ges­tions!

For more in­for­ma­tion on pro­grams, events and ser­vices at the li­brary, visit our web­site at www.drumheller­li­, or call us at 403823-1371. We’re also on Face­book, Twit­ter, and Pin­ter­est!
