The Luncheon Lectures at North Central Michigan College continue this fall. The lectures are in the Library conference room on the Petoskey campus. The luncheon begins at 11:30am with the lecture starting at noon.

Today’s lecture: “Iceland’s Saga Today: Lessons from a Small Island.” Join photographer, educator and explorer Carole Elchert for a look at Iceland’s approaches to the issues that face rich or poor, large or small countries around the world: how to preserve the environment and develop resources; how to increase literacy; how to reduce poverty while increasing wealth; how to protect the freedom of information and privacy rights; how to eschew war in a well-armed modern world; how to revitalize today with the great literature of the past—the sagas.

Carol presents her beautiful photographs and insights from multiple visits to Iceland and leads a discussion on issues that impact all cultures.

This lecture is free and open to the public. No lunch is provided.

Petoskey, on Little Traverse Bay, is about 60 miles north of Traverse City on US-31.
