The Visitor @ La Crosse Public Library
Nov 9 @ 6:00 pm

The Visitor stars Richard Jenkins (Six Feet Under) in a perfect performance as Walter, a disaffected college professor who has been drifting aimlessly through his life. When, in a chance encounter on a trip into New York, Walter discovers a couple has taken up residence in his apartment in the city, he develops an unexpected and profound connection to them that will change his life forever. As challenges arise for his tenants, Walter finds himself compelled to help his new friends, and rediscovers a passion he thought he had lost long ago. A must-see film about rediscovering life’s rhythms in the most unexpected places. (film runtime is 104 minutes)

How to Travel the World with Andy Stoll @ Viterbo Nursing Center, Room 196
Nov 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
How to Travel the World with Andy Stoll @ Viterbo Nursing Center, Room 196 | La Crosse | Wisconsin | United States

How to Travel the World with Andy Stoll is a “60-minute, high-energy, inspirational presentation that motivates listeners to explore the world with their eyes wide open. The talk culminates in his 4-year, 40-country solo trip around the world, while drawing lessons learned from some of Andy’s early life experiences that led him to undertake this seemingly impossible journey.

Andy’s presentation is much more than just a travel slideshow, its an insightful, inspiring, entertaining and often hilarious look at what it takes to find our place in the world and make our biggest dreams come true–whether that is to travel around the world, or something a little closer to home.” -http://www.andystoll.net/collegetour/
