Anatolian Days & Nights, with Angie Brenner
Inveterate traveler and former travel bookstore proprietor Angie Brenner presents a slide show and talk on a book she co-authored with Joy Stocke, the fruit of their ten-year odyssey through Turkey. With intuition, experience, and a bit of serendipity, they found excitement, friendship, and love, and learned how and why Turkey—a country that holds the keys to Western Civilization—continues to grow in world importance. “… an intimate, clear-eyed view of a fascinating country. Stocke and Brenner have captured the contradictions of modern day Turkey, while exposing the complex web of history at the heart of our human story.” ~ Alan Drew, author of Gardens of Water
