About This Event
Join Thomas Crane Public Library and guest, Reference Librarian Jeff Klapes, ‘The Traveling Librarian,’ for an armchair traveler’s journey to the cosmopolitan city of Istanbul. A major crossroads of eastern and western civilization, Istanbul is not Turkey's political capital, but it is the country's largest city and cultural hub. Rich with gorgeous Islamic architecture, fascinating markets, and vibrant street life, Istanbul is a city that will amaze you with its opulence. Jeff Klapes is the Head of Reference Services at the Lucius Beebe Memorial Library in Wakefield, Massachusetts.
