Bewes

MONROE - British-Swiss author, Diccon Bewes, will be making a third visit to Turner Hall of Monroe at 7 p.m. on Monday with a one-hour presentation titled "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Switzerland."

Bewes will share unusual facts and stories about Switzerland, with time allotted for questions and answers. The event will be held in Turner Hall's Grand Hall, 1217 17th Ave., Monroe, and is free and open to the public.

The author of numerous books, Bewes is also a contributor to SwissInfo.ch, a 10-language news and information platform produced by the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation. Additionally, his work has been featured throughout Switzerland in various forms of media, from print to radio to television.

Originally from Great Britain and now a Swiss citizen, Bewes worked as a travel journalist in London, and later became the manager of the Stauffacher English Bookshop in Bern. He is now a full-time writer, exploring bits of Switzerland most people have never heard of before.

Bewes' appearance is being co-sponsored by Turner Hall's Swiss Heritage Series and the Swiss Center of North America in New Glarus.

Some of Bewes' books will be available for sale. The Ratskeller Restaurant, in the lower level of Turner Hall, will be open from 5 - 7 p.m. serving a Swiss buffet. Reservations are appreciated by calling 608-325-3461. For more information, visit www.TurnerHallofMonroe.org.
