Peter Jenkins, celebrated travel author, who is traveling the country working on a new book, will make a return visit to MURPHY, NC for a PUBLIC speaking engagement on MARCH 21, 2013. The Learning Center! Charter School will be offering tickets for the much anticipated event starting on January 22.
Jenkins is the author of three New York Times best sellers. Walk Across America has been used in schools across the country and was the inspiration for The Learning Center’s Venture Out Program, a cross-curricular Appalachian studies program combining education with travel.
The students have been following Jenkins’ travels on his FaceBook page. “It has really added a new dimension to read and study about his adventures in a book and then follow his recent travels via social media,” said director of the school, Mary Jo Dyre.
Tickets for the event, to be held at the Henn Theater must be purchased in advance, first come first served and seating is limited. (Ticket prices are forthcoming…. details on Tuesday)
Tickets will be sold through three locations:
2) through the school’s website: www.naturallygrownkids.org
3) The Curiosity Shop Bookstore
