Encore Learning to present program on temples of Angkor

Must Read

Author John Burgess will bring to life the fascinating modern history of Cambodia’s fabled Angkor temples in an Encore Learning online program slated for Monday, Jan. 10 at 3 p.m.

“The story includes archaeology, occupation during the Vietnam conflict, celebrity visitors such as Charlie Chaplin and Jackie Kennedy, and in recent years mass tourism,” organizers said. “Burgess’s talk will include many images of the temples. It will draw not only on old sources, such journals and letters, but also from his own extensive experience in Cambodia.”

The event, cosponsored with the county library system, is free, and registration is not required. The Zoom link is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84268052749; for those phoning in, the number is (301) 715-8592 and the meeting ID is 842 6805 2749.
