In view of the enthusiastic response to his talk on the Silk Road at the Dover Library sponsored by the Dover Historical Society, Grant Stephen will present his talk, “Nations in Transition: A Modern Walk Along the Northern Silk Road” on Friday, January 29 at 7 p.m. at St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church in Dover in the lower level.
Stephen, a Dover resident since 2010, is a Scots-born entrepreneur and intrepid world traveler. In 1995 he was living in Japan and needed to get back to Scotland. No fan of flying, he decided to make the journey without leaving the surface of the earth.
Stephen will tell stories of the people he met and the events that took place while traveling the historic route. Twenty years have seen innumerable changes in that part of the world – the ancient connection between East and West.
Could he make the same journey today?
Designed for all ages, the talk is wide ranging and covers both history and modern politics.
There is a suggested donation of $10 per person and children under 16 are free. Proceeds from this event will support St. Dunstan’s church. Light refreshments will be served.
