Louis Salome, a retired Cox Newspapers reporter, shares behind-the-scenes stories of conflicts in the war zones of Europe, Asia and Africa in a lecture “What’s Your Blood?” at York County Community College, 112 College Drive, Wells.

The lecture, presented as part of the spring semester offerings from South Coast Senior College (SCSC), is free and open to all.

Salome, who also teaches the SCSC course “Tribes Rule: Roots of Conflict in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria,” will take his audience on a fascinating journey that includes fleeing on a makeshift raft from Kurdistan, chasing Iraqi scud missile strikes and racing past check posts in Uzbekistan.

He bases his lecture on scenes from his travel diary that was published as a highly-praised book. One reviewer noted: “It is a wonderful book, a rare opportunity to be a companion to a road-worn, wise, but never weary observer of the world’s woes.”

South Coast Senior College is part of the Maine Senior College Network. It is open to York County and Seacoast N.H. residents, age 50 and up, year-round and seasonal. Annual membership is $25. Classes are $25. Lectures are free to all, no matter your age.
