One of Home on the Sound’s favorite speakers, Tim Alexander, a geography specialist, will spotlight the rich history of the Silk Road on March 14.
Alexander will share his observations about the multiple trade routes that defined the Silk Road’s three “Golden Eras” and the impulses triggering the two-way exchanges that overcame terrain and distance. Traveling the old routes vicariously, he will examine the flows of culture, religion and technology that accompanied trade and eclipsed it in terms of impact. He says its rebirth today is a major economic and tourist initiative.
Alexander has an MMA with Honors from the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Geography and an AB in Philosophy from Stanford.
At Home on the Sound, an organization for Larchmont/Mamaroneck senior residents, offers bimonthly programs and a variety of personalized services such as transportation to doctors, grocery stores, and local cultural events as well as opportunities for canasta, current events discussions, book groups and local dining.
This program is open to the public without charge at 4:00 pm, preceded by refreshments at 3:30 pm at Larchmont Avenue Church, Russell Hall, 60 Forest Park Avenue, Larchmont.
