This week, Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from Boulder, Colorado and the studios at KGNU. Boulder is about to host the Jaipur Literature Festival which will be held September 23rd through 25th. Joining Peter Greenberg will be festival director Jessie Friedman, who talks about the original Jaipur Literature Festival founded in India (it starts September 23 in Boulder). Kathy Beeck, Founder and Director of the Boulder International Film Festival, details what makes the film festival critically renowned, including its rigorous selection process that screens more than 1,000 film submissions each year. Speaking of great events, John D. Griffin, Faculty Director of Boulder's legendary Conference on World Affairs, talks about the history of the Conference, founded back in 1948, now held at the University of Colorado Boulder every April. The week-long event attracts star speakers from around the world, and nearly 70,000 people show up. The best deal: admission is free. Nancy Geyer, Executive Director & CEO Boulder History Museum, tells some great stories of the 72 year-old museum, and how it celebrates Native American ties to the city, as well as more contemporary exhibits, including "from tea to tofu," and an upcoming marijuana history retrospective. Bobby Stuckey, Master Sommelier and Owner of Frasca Food and Wine, describes his experience with Colorado wine makers. Yes, they make wine in Colorado, and some of the major challenges in the process. There's all this and more, as Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from the studios of KGNU in Boulder, Colorado.
