Rick Steves’ The Holy Land: Israelis and Palestinians Today

Winspear Opera House – Wednesday, October 1, 2014 – 7:30 pm  $40 to $25

The AT&T Performing Arts Center, in partnership with KERA and The World Affairs Council, presents an evening with Rick Steves, the international travel expert and PBS television personality, featuring an onstage conversation on his

month-long traveling experience: The Holy Land: Israelis and Palestinians Today. You’ll follow him as he connects with students at Palestinian universities, visits with Zionist settlers whose claim to the land goes back to Biblical times, bobs like a cork in the Dead Sea, roasts coffee with Bedouin nomads, and walks in the footsteps of the fascinating spectrum of people who call this region home and struggle to share it peacefully.  While there are no easy answers to the complex challenges of the Holy Land, with this entertaining evening, Rick shares vivid insights in a land a third of humanity considers holy.
