Rick Steves in the Holy Land

Posted by Dawn Bayman on

European travel expert Rick Steves is well known to KSPS fans. He visits Spokane occasionally to share his wisdom about how to get the most for your travel dollar and time when you're in Europe. Coming in November, he takes on a new part of the world for him: the Holy Land. 

Join us on Saturday, November 22, 2pm at Center Place at Mirabeau Point Park and hear Rick talk about his ground-breaking trip to Israel and Palestine last spring. More info and tickets...

Rick spent most of a year preparing his new one-hour Holy Land program, first aired on KSPS earlier this month. (See an encore brodcast Saturday, November 22, 4 pm/5 Mtn.) In it, he weaves together the Israeli and the Palestinian narratives to better understand a place that is, for a third of humanity, literally holy land. The crossroads for three religions, the Holy Land has been coveted and fought over for centuries. He visits the major sights, but delves deeper to better understand and empathize with both cultures. Along the way, he learns about security walls, disputed settlements and the persistent challenges facing the region as Israelis and Palestinians learn to coexist peacefully. 

Join us for Rick's talk on this incredible experience. And if you can't make it, be sure to watch Saturday, November 22, 4 pm/5 Mtn.
