Friendship Force: An Evening with Rick Steves

Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 7:00 PM
Washington Center Main Stage

Rick Steves – author of over 50 European travel guidebooks and host of the public television series, Rick Steves' Europe – believes that thoughtful travel expands our world view and shapes how we address the challenges confronting our nation. Having spent four months a year overseas for the last 30 years, Rick feels that travel helps us “challenge truths we were raised to think were self-evident and God-given.” His lectures, TV shows, and guidebooks have helped millions of Americans not only enjoy maximum travel thrills per mile, minute and euro…but become better citizens of our planet. Rick shares how the other 96 percent of humanity sees our nation and explores how his social activism has grown naturally out of his travel experiences. He’s fresh back from lots of travels and will be on hand after his talk for questions and autographs.
