The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will host the third event in its Travelogue series — “Greece” — Wednesday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m.
Manzanita resident Mindi Bender has visited Greece more than a dozen times between 1985 and 2017, most frequently to the Island of Lesvos in the north Aegean Sea.
She has had opportunities to live with the Greek people and study their language. She delights in eating delicious authentic homemade Greek foods.
The photos will convey her deep love for the vibrancy of Greek culture and colorful, splendid scenery of this ancient land.
“Travelogue Greece” is the third in a series of photography shows sponsored by the Hoffman Center to celebrate global culture and community through the lens of our local citizens.
Refreshments will be served and a discussion will follow the presentation. Admission is $5
Last April, Bender did a presentation on the Middle Eastern refugee crisis that has been impacting parts of Greece, particularly the island of Lesvos, since 2015. She plans to provide a separate, in-depth update on that situation, including stories of the refugees she has worked with there, during another talk at the Hoffman Center sometime in the Spring 2018.
