Armchair Travel: Austria Then and Now (1968 and Now)
Just 20 years after the close of World War II, Ken Mabery was a Foreign Student in Austria. His talk will focus on his experiences during that time of reformation of the Austrian culture with the Iron Curtain on her eastern border, compared to his travels in the country in the 2010s. This event is co-hosted by the Newcomers Club. Seating is limited. Tickets will be handed out beginning at 6 p.m. the evening of the event.
