Abrams, 2003.), reflect the historic era when Vienna, Budapest, and Prague  were cultural and political giants.

Christina Gibbons Ph.D. has lectured locally on the history of reading, writing, and libraries, and most recently on The Gilgamesh Epic and Sumerian sculpture.  She looks forward to sharing her new pictures and stories from the glory days of the Austrian Empire.
