This presentation was created for the annual Evelyn Thurman Young Readers Book Award luncheon. Most of the photos are from Evelyn's own travel slides. As a young woman, she traveled the world, both as a tourist and as a teacher at U.S. Armed Services Schools. Accompanying the photos are quotations from the contributors to the Evelyn Thurman Oral History Project, also available here on TopScholar. The presentation is best viewed with audio enabled, as Emmylou Harris's beautiful rendering of "Goodbye" plays during the slideshow.
