Don Samford is the perfect world globe trotter to offer a travelogue - knowledgeable, well-read, and a prolific photographer! Join us to learn more about the rich history of the country at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. Join us at the Peoria Public Library, North Branch, for this delightful journey through Turkey.
Don Samford has led numerous tours of Turkey in the past decade. His research interests have led him to explore the social, political and economic relationships of the various groups in the country as Turkey's current president has become more authoritarian. He found his passion for exploring this country as part of a teacher exchange program while he was a Master Social Studies Teacher at Eureka High School. He continues to follow news about Turkey and contact friends he has made there over the years. His return trips to lead tours for the World Affairs Councils of America travel program have given him plenty of opportunities to build his library of photos and stories he is looking forward to sharing with us!
