Writers LIVE: Maria Drumm, Silk Road Journeys

Writers LIVE: Maria Drumm, Silk Road Journeys

Through her photographs and personal experiences, Maria Drumm takes us on a journey through the ancient countries of Sagdiana, Burma, and Ceylon, across China and the Taklamakan desert and into the rock-cut caves of India. Drumm follows the caravan trading routes of the “Silk Road,” as well as the maritime routes around the straits of Malacca, Cambodia and Vietnam.

After a 20-year career in law, Maria Drumm retired to teach at Anhui University in Bengbu, China from 2002-2005. She has also taught in India and won awards for her teaching and her photography.

Writers LIVE programs are supported in part by a grant from PNC Bank.
