Rick Steves to Deliver Public Lecture

rick_stevesNationally recognized travel expert Rick Steves will deliver a free public lecture on Friday, Nov. 9 at 11 a.m. in Hoversten Chapel of Augsburg College’s Foss Center.

His lecture, “Travel as a Political Act,” will discuss how travel has changed his perspectives on the United States’ role in the world.

“Travel helps us celebrate differences and overcome misunderstandings — big and little — between people,” says Steves. “Travel paints a human face on our globe, making the vast gap between rich and poor vivid.”

Steves is author of Europe Through the Back Door and host of well-known travel shows on PBS and public radio.

The lecture is being held in honor of Augsburg’s Center for Global Education’s 25th anniversary. Steves has traveled on CGE programs on three separate occasions.
