Selections from Michael Palin’s “Sahara” with Bear Silvershade
Tuesday 28 December, 2010
6:00pm – 7:00pm SLT
Where: Seanchai Library on Info Island International

“Sahara is one of the most powerful and evocative names on the world map. As a child, the images I had of the Sahara were both frightening and intriguing – palm trees, camels, turbanned travellers reclining, whilst being poured sparkling water by urn-carrying maidens in flimsy veils. It looked fun. I also knew that most western explorers who tried to cross it never came back. The combination of seduction and severity appealed to me.” Drop by as Bear shares these warm tales in voice.
