Strap on your virtual seatbelt and settle in for some vicarious adventure with the new Armchair Travel Series presented by Winters Friends of the Library. Guests will “visit” six exotic locales as Winters residents share slides and stories from their travels to the far corners of the globe.

The series begins Thursday with presentations on Pakistan and India. Sally Brown will speak about her trip to Pakistan earlier this year with the International Center for Journalists, as part of an exchange program between Pakistani and U.S. media professionals. The group visited Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore. Eric Doud and Michael Sears, both architects, will discuss their travels around India last spring.

The series will continue on May 16 with slides and talks on Croatia by Pat Thompson and Sweden by Stephanie Myers and Garry Douglas. On June 13, Linda Glick and Elliot Landes will share their visit to Peru, and Cedar Seegar will talk about his journey to Tibet.

The talks will begin at 7 p.m. at the Winters Community Library, 708 Railroad Ave. There is no charge, but donations will be accepted with gratitude. Refreshments will be served. For more information, visit wfol.org or email [email protected].
