The Williams Lake Library’s Armchair Travel program begins this Thursday evening, Jan. 20 with a presentation by Darryl Grams on Bolivia.

The presentation begins at 7 p.m. in the library meeting room, say program organizers Val Biffert and Pam Hedley-Smith.

“Bolivia holds a plethora of adventures, from the lofty reaches of the limits of the  Inca Empire, down the infamous Highway of Death, to the haunts of the legend of Ché Guevera,” Grams says in the introduction to the presentation.

“This is a ‘walk about’ to savour the flavour of this frenetic country with only a whisper of what is truly there. 

“A bit of legend, history and culture is presented through the rose coloured glasses of a solitary traveller.”

The Armchair Travel program is extremely popular and since space is limited pre-registration is recommended by calling 250-392-3630 or registering at the library to book your seat.

Each armchair travel experience features the recent travel experiences of a local community member, through words, pictures, sometimes even music and food.

The program for the coming weeks is as follows: Jan. 27, Kirsty Gartshore on New York; Feb. 3, Georgina Chipman on rafting the Fraser River; Feb. 10, LeRae Haynes on Italy; Feb. 17, Helen Bayliff on Peru; Feb. 24, Doug McRae on Scotland.
