Rich and his wife, Sarah Dismukes, who is also a Troy University professor, were on sabbatical leave during the fall semester. They took the opportunity to visit Ireland and Serbia. The focus for Dismukes, an artist with an interest in bookmaking, was visiting with a bookmaker in Serbia and Rich’s focus of interest was the international theater festivals in Ireland and Serbia.
