Green, Green Ireland - Dublin, Dingle and Ring of Kerry!

Madison Public Library: Hawthorne Branch

James Joyce as well as Oscar Wilde would've approved...

Quebec City: 400 Years of History

Madison Public Library: Hawthorne Branch

Join Kent Wenger as he explores Quebec City, one of the oldest European cities in North America (founded in 1608) with the only remaining fortified city walls north of Mexico. But Quebec City isn't just about the past -- it's vibrant, intensely friendly and exciting – concentrating on both people and food. To put it bluntly, Quebec is one of the closest places you can go and feel like you're someplace completely different. Bon Voyage!
