A SETTLER'S YEAR with author Kathleen Ernst

"A Settler's Year" provides a rare glimpse into the lives of early immigrants to the upper Midwest. Evocative photographs taken at Old World Wisconsin, the country's largest outdoor museum of rural life, lushly illustrate stories woven by historian, novelist, and poet Kathleen Ernst and compelling firsthand accounts left by the settlers themselves.

Adult Afternoon Program: LOVING WORK IN VIETNAM

LOVING WORK IN VIETNAM with Dr. Margaret Alexander

Approaching age 67, Margaret Alexander had many questions about Vietnam. She was hearing more and more stories from veterans of the American/Vietnam War, and was wondering about conditions in the country now, 50 years later. Further, her Buddhist teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh, comes from Vietnam, although he lives in exile in France, now.

Last fall Margaret saw an invitation to go to Vietnam, see some of the temples where Thich Nhat Hanh had spent time, and also be part of a group contributing Loving Work in Central Vietnam. The trip would involve a lot of bike riding on narrow country roads, which added an element of apprehension.
