MASON CITY – The 2011-2012 Travel and Adventure Film Series continues with “Story Book England” at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 22, 2012 in the North Iowa Community Auditorium, located on the North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) campus.

The 2011-2012 Travel and Adventure Series is sponsored by the Mason City Noon Kiwanis.

Story Book England showcases the homes where some of Britain’s most celebrated writers lived and worked, forever inscribing their names in English literature. “England’s literary landscape is not only richly varied, but marked with great beauty and filled with some of the world’s most delightful characters,” said veteran travel film producer Hal McClure, a former foreign correspondent and editor of the Travel Adventure Cinema online magazine.

Starting with the London of Chaucer and Dr. Samuel Johnson, McClure takes the audience to the charming south coast of Jane Austen, Rudyard Kipling and Agatha Christie. From there travel will continue to Lewis Carroll’s Oxford, Shakespeare’s Stratford, the Yorkshire Moors of the Bronte sisters and the glorious Lake District of Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin and William Wordsworth.

Other film highlights include meeting actress Amanda Root, who played the lead role in the BBC’s Jane Austen drama, Persuasion and a tour of the Royal Worcester plant to watch the creation of its beautiful porcelain pieces. The origins behind some popular nursery rhymes, such as Little Jack Horner, Jack and Jill, and Ring around the Rosie, will also be told.

The Mason City Noon Kiwanis and NIACC are proud to present the 2011-2012 Travel and Adventure Film Series. Shown in the North Iowa Community Auditorium, these films appeal to a wide audience of travelers. Beautiful scenery, out-of-the-ordinary locations, various cultures, and people are depicted throughout the films. Tickets are only $5 for adults and $3 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the door or from any Noon Kiwanis member or through the NIACC Continuing Education Office 641-422-4358.
