Sister Cities of Franklin and Williamson County continues its second year of the highly successful series Passport to the World by traveling to India in April, at the Williamson County Library. The discussion will be held Sunday, April 1, at 2 p.m. and feature Fox 17 morning news anchor Nick Paranjape. Nick has invited a representative from Bombay Bistro Indian Restaurant to speak on Indian foods and serve some treats. Nick, who is from India, will also bring his family for discussion of their experiences there. In addition, an Indian dance teacher will perform, sing, and answer questions.
Passport to the World provides an authentic and personal look into the splendor of our continents around the globe. This series will walk you through the doorways of the world into our seven continents to experience the art, music, food, lifestyle, landscape, and heritage of our international neighbors without leaving the Williamson County Library.
Activities for children and adults are often offered during the presentation. Passport to the World is presented by Sister Cities of Franklin and Williamson County and co-sponsored by the Williamson County Public Library and the Townsend Institute for Global Competency at O’More College of Design. This is a free series. If you are interested in learning more about the Passport Program please contact Sharon Bottorff at 615-790-5815 ext. 3.
