Savvy Sightseer's Great Britain with a Taste Treat from Outlander

Join Jean Schnupp on a Savvy Sightseer travelogue to enjoy scenes and stories from Great Britain.  You'll explore the Scottish Highlands and sample a taste treat from the popular Outlander book and TV series. You'll also peek inside the Royal Britannia, the very posh 410-foot floating palace of British royals. You'll visit northern Wales, from its highest peak in Snowdonia National Park to the rugged coastal regions. And in England,  you'll  go to Chester and take a walk on the largest remaining Roman wall. See why the poet Wordsworth was so inspired by the Lake District and what drew queens and emperors to elegant Bath. You'll also stroll through London and learn the backstories of its famous, and not-so-famous, landmarks.

This program is limited to 35 participants. Registration begins on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 for Garden City Library cardholders. Please call 516-742-8405 x 221. Non residents may register on January 19th .

This program is sponsored by The Friends of the Garden City Public Library.
