S. LONDONDERRY, Vt. – There will be an artist’s reception on “Bhutan and Nepal – Shangri-la awakens” by Paul E. Myers, Wednesday, June 27 at 7 p.m. at South Londonderry Public Library.

Earth’s exploding population and technologies have penetrated even the most remote mountain villages of the Himalayas. This technological invasion is accelerating, and threatens to destabilize peoples who have lived in peaceful isolation for centuries. A sad consequence of this invasion is that much of great value is lost as smart phones replace conversation and “society” expands to include everybody.

The Himalaya scenery is stunning. The people are lively and inventive. We have much to learn from them, even if it might be too late.

There will be time for questions and comments after the talk with free refreshments.

For library visitors of the show, this display is arranged clockwise from the left side of the corkboard panel. If you read the orange notebook as you study the display photos, this will give you a much more thorough understanding of the tour. Each photo is keyed to ages in the orange book.
