Noble Horizons welcomes author and historian David Frye, PhD. who will discuss his new book, Walls: A History of Civilization in Blood and Brick. Walls tells the epic story of history’s greatest man made barriers, from ancient times to the present. For over ten thousand years, walls have protected us and divided us and much of humankind has lived inside walls, behind walls, on the right or wrong side of walls. In a recent Washington Post interview Frye explained, “Walls of the past and the walls of the present are built for the purpose of security, and it’s this idea of security that is the timeless link. Insecurity is just a chronic form of fear, and it’s certainly insecurity that has driven the building of both the ancient and the modern walls.”  Registration for Dr. Frye’s free program is at https://noblehorizons.org or 860-435-9851.
