Marco Polo, Introduction to Islam: exciting programs to begin the spring season

At the beginning of April two exciting programs will kick off an international theme at the library that will continue through August. The first is a film screening and discussion with the filmmaker of In the Footsteps of Marco Polo.

Two ordinary guys, Denis Belliveau, a wedding photographer, and Francis O'Donnell, an artist and U.S. Marine veteran, had the wild idea of retracing Marco Polo's epic 25,000 mile route from Venice to China and back. They spent two years on horse-back and camel-back and in jeeps, trucks, ships, and trains  trying to do so. Come to a 90 minute film screening of this remarkable adventure and a discussion with film maker Francis O'Donnell. That's Wednesday, April 3rd, 3:30 p.m., in Room L-129.

The second is an educational event about Islam that is part of a National Endowment for the Humanities grant called Bridging Cultures: Muslim Journeys. The library has received a collection of 25 books, movies, and magazines celebrating Islamic culture and for the month of April it will be on display along with Islamic art on loan from the Houston Muslim community. Mark your calendar for the educational program, Introduction to Islam, the Religion and Its Cultures, co-hosted by Al Salaam Mosque, on Thursday, April 4th, at 2:00 p.m. in the college's Room E-100.
