NPR Journalists Present Illustrated Lecture at Arts Council
Two National Public Radio (NPR) journalists will present "A View from Russia, by Rail" at the Carroll Arts Center tonight.
"A View from Russia, on Rail" is an illustrated lecture by National Public Radio’s current morning programming host/correspondent and former Moscow correspondent David Greene & photographer David Gilkey.
Nearly 6,000 miles of railroad separates Russia's capital city of Moscow from Vladivostok on the Pacific Ocean. While crossing the world's largest country and bridging two continents, NPR's David Greene prepared a three–part series on how Russia's history has shaped its people and where, 20 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russians want their country to go.
Accompanying Greene was David Gilkey, who has traveled the world on assignment for NPR. Gilkey has worked for NPR for about four years as a photographer — for radio. Gilkey had 16 days to shoot a photo essay aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway.
Highlights of their adventure will be shared this evening at the Carroll Arts Center, 91 West Main Street, at 7 p.m.
