Guidebook author and TV travel host Rick Steves hosts two presentations Wednesday, Nov. 19, at Bellingham High School, 2020 Cornwall Ave.
At 6 p.m. he will present a “European Travel Skills” slide show, a 90-minute seminar in which he explains the practical, money-saving ins-and-outs of independent travel.
From 8 to 9 p.m. he will present “The Holy Land: A Talk about Israel and Palestine.” With the help of vivid photographs, he will share the beauty of the conflict-ravaged area, and offer a glimpse of the challenges facing its residents, including disputed settlements, the security wall and refugee camps.
Admission is $5, with non-refundable tickets at Village Books and brownpapertickets.com. Tickets include admission to one or both events. Doors open 5:30 p.m. Proceeds benefit Bellingham High’s PTSA.
