Broaden Your Global Perspective with Rick Steves

Article by Jeremy

Join us for a special presentation by travel expert Rick Steves at the Christ Church Cathedral (Episcopal) on Thursday, March 5, 2015! This event is a partnership between Brazos Bookstore and Houston Public Media.

Rick Steves--author of over 50 European travel guidebooks and host of the public television series, Rick Steves' Europe--believes that thoughtful travel expands our world view and shapes how we address the challenges confronting our nation politically. Having spent four months a year overseas for the last 30 years, Rick feels that travel helps us “challenge truths we were raised to think were self-evident and God-given.” His lectures, TV shows, and guidebooks have helped millions of Americans not only enjoy maximum travel thrills per mile, minute and euro…but become better citizens of our planet. Rick shares how the other 96 percent of humanity sees our nation and explores how his social activism has grown naturally out of his travel experiences.

Each $5 ticket admits one person and can be picked up at Brazos Bookstore or at the event. (Doors open at 5 p.m.) Signed copies of Rick Steves' TRAVEL AS A POLITICAL ACT will be available for purchase, but there will be no book signing.
