Even more stuff to do

The Stratford Library will present a look at present-day Nepal at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24. Guest speaker for “Nepal: Its Mountains and People” will be Stratford family therapist, playwright and world traveler Orna Rawls, who snapped the photo at right during a trek to Nepal. The film and discussion program is free and open to the public.
Of the 14 mountains that top 8,000 meters, eight are in Nepal. The majestic Nepal Himalayas have long held fascination to both climbers and trekkers. Orna Rawls, who trekked around the Everest Base Camp and the Annpurna range, will talk about the unique culture of trekking and the traditions, religions and people of Nepal. Video of her adventures will accompany the talk. Rawls enthralled a standing-room-only audience last year at the library with her lecture on Tibet, organizer said. “Nepal: Its Mountains and People” will be held in the library’s Lovell Room.
