CCR Book Club: Siena Excursion - April 30, 2016

At the end of April the CCR Book Club will be going on an exceptional day trip to Siena. Our special guide will be Laura Forconi, former manager of the Canadian Studies Centre at the University of Siena (now closed). We'll do some sightseeing, have a delicious lunch, and, in the afternoon, discuss "The Cat's Table" by famed Canadian author Michael Ondaatje. 

When: Saturday, Apr. 30, 2016
Timing: 8 a.m. coach bus departure from the Bus Terminal next to Tiburtina Railway Station. The return bus leaves Siena (Piazza Gramsci, same as arrival point) at 8 p.m.
Costs: Bus tickets are sold by Baltour online at a considerable discount if purchased 1 month in advance of departure date. Each participant must buy their own ticket.
NOTE: Some may choose to stay in Siena overnight. Please make these arrangements on your own.
Further info & RSVP: ATTN Nicoletta Barbarito.
