Emerging from her childhood, Kaiulani set sail for America to meet President Grover Cleveland, to prove that she and her people were not the “barbarians” portrayed by the American press. Run time 130 min. This film is rated PG, for more information go to imdb.com.

Kevin Cook - Writing Colorado
Tuesday, March 10, 2015
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Old Town Library, Community Room

Writing Colorado, a year-long series, features twelve writers whose books reveal the essential character of this state we call home. Colorado’s landscapes and lifescapes inspired many writers in the last two and a half centuries. Some just passed through; some came and stayed; some did not become writers until they lived here awhile. Their words, living long after they disappear, yet speak of yesterday’s Colorado that we might more clearly understand the Colorado of today. March - Wallace Stegner: Beyond the Hundredth Meridian 1868

Please join Klaus Lorenz for a presentation on The "Silk Road", which was a network of roads that connected China with Europe from the 2nd century BC to the 16th century AD. Camel caravans carried all kinds of goods, but also science and culture from Xian, China to Venice and Rome in Europe. We will travel sections of this network through the former Soviet Republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. We will talk about the history of the region which once was ruled by Alexander the Great, Cyrus the Great, Genghis Khan and Tamerlane, visit the ancient cities of Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva with their mosques, shrines, mausoleums, fortifications and caravanserais and admire their architecture, discuss agriculture and food production in the region, walk through markets and meet the people of the lands. Klaus is well known to those of you who regularly attend INL. He has traveled to over 80 countries and shared many of these adventures with us at the Library Program. He is retired from CSU and enjoys traveling the world.
