Description

The Omnibus Speaker Series presents Rick Steves, guidebook author and travel TV Host

"Travel as a Political Act"

Tickets available starting on October 7

As the host and writer of a popular PBS series and author of a best-selling line of guidebooks, Rick Steves advocates for smart, affordable, and perspective-broadening European travel.

Over the past 20 years, Steves has hosted more than 100 travel shows for public television (Rick Steves’ Europe TV series is carried by over 300 stations, reaching 95 percent of US markets). He also hosts a weekly public-radio program, writes a syndicated newspaper column, and has published over 80 European travel guidebooks and phrase books. He spends about a third of every year in Europe, researching guidebooks, filming TV shows, and making new discoveries for travelers.

In 2009, Steves tackled a new genre of travel writing with Travel as a Political Act, reflecting on how a life of travel has broadened his own perspectives and led him to believe that travel can be a significant force for peace and understanding in the world.
