Kathleen Stocking presents:
The Long Arc of the Universe – Travels Beyond the Pale

Tuesday, February 7 11:00 am-12:00 noon
$10/session or $12/session at the door

Kathleen Stocking tells of her experiences included in her book, The Long Arc of the Universe — Travels Beyond the Pale. She shares the joys and trials of travelling and working in the Third World – some of the adventures and near disasters as well as some of the revelations and rewards. She is an advocate of Americans — and everyone everywhere –- developing a global awareness in keeping with the vastness of the Internet. It is a “brave new world out” there (Shakespeare) and we need to understand it.

Award-winning essayist Kathleen Stocking has two Michigan best sellers, Letters from the Leelanau and Lake Country. She has now written a third book, The Long Arc of the Universe – Travels Beyond the Pale. This book, based on global travels of the last 20 years, represents her attempt to understand the larger world, including several third world countries, in relationship to her beloved Leelanau Peninsula. The three books represent a trilogy: peninsula, state, world. Register www.petoskeylibrary.org, 231.758.3100 or click the Ticket link above. $10 advance / $12 at the door.
