Peru and Inca Program 2/21 at 7pm

Please join the Friends of the Jackson Public Library as they host local resident Larry Garland and his program Peru and the Incas on Sunday, February 21st, 2016 at 7:00 pm at the Jackson Public Library, located at 52 Main Street in Jackson, NH.

Larry will present a retrospective of his 2014 Peruvian tour of the Sacred Valley and 4-day trek of the Inca Trail to the “Lost City” of Machu Picchu. Listeners will explore the environment, culture, and achievements of the Incas through his presentation.

The Inca culture evolved over many thousands of years, but unlike other tribal societies in the western hemisphere, the Incas ultimately created a sophisticated and advanced empire that lasted only 100 years before being vanquished by the Spanish in 1532.

Larry has served as the staff cartographer for the Appalachian Mountain Club since 1996. He has traveled through all 50 states and more than 20 foreign countries, seeking out remote adventures in unfamiliar landscapes. Having summited four continental high points as well as every peak over 3000 feet in NH, Larry continues to explore the nooks and crannies here in New England, finding mysteries and treasured memories in our own backyard.

The presentation is free and open to the public although a $5.00 donation is welcome to offset speaker expenses. For more information, please contact the Jackson Public Library at 603-383-9731
