Author from Switzerland to speak on book of maps
MONROE - A best-selling author in Switzerland, Diccon Bewes, will return to the Turner Hall of Monroe at 7 p.m. Thursday to give a presentation on his latest book, "Around Switzerland in 80 Maps," which was recently translated into English. The pictorial book, first released in Switzerland a year ago, is a journey through time and space using maps as a guide. Each map, researched and found in both official archival and private collections, has been chosen for a particular reason, be that an important moment in Swiss history, an interesting aspect of Swiss life or because it's simply beautiful.
