A Visit to Illinois Amish Country

A Road Scholar program by Raymond Bial

In this informal slide presentation, photographer and author Raymond Bial presents a panoramic tour of the Illinois Amish Country. Through this unique experience, audience members will learn about common misconceptions and complexities of Amish culture. Since the Amish do not wish to be photographed up close, this fascinating tale will include discussion of how one portrays a community without depicting those on the inside.
