AU Lifelong Learning Announces March Programming

Registration is now underway for all AU Lifelong Learning programs including:

“Great Decisions 2011”

Since 1954, the Foreign Policy Association’s “Great Decisions” program has brought millions of Americans together to talk about the most pressing international issues of the day.  Using the FPA Briefing Books and DVD as a guide, the six topics for discussion this spring are: Middle East realignment; Exit from Afghanistan & Iraq; State of the Oceans; Indonesia; Energy Geopolitics; and Mexico. Six-week program meets Tuesday afternoons beginning Feb 28.

“Drawing for the Non-Artist”

We will develop a comfort level with using basic drawing materials, learn some drawing skills, create some art and have fun along the way. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to give it a try. Six-week program begins March 13.    “Drawing for the Non-Artist” is full and closed. Please contact the LLI office to get on list for the next class.    

“Mother Savannah: Savannah River History to the Present”

The Savannah River, which forms the border between South Carolina and Georgia, has been called the “Birthgiver of Upstate SC History.”

LLI is proud to announce another program that will bring together historians and researchers sharing their unforgettable pictures and stories of slavery and the Civil War, King Cotton, life before Civil Rights, and the Savannah lakes.

Five-week program meets Tuesday evenings beginning March 20.    

 “Flannery O’Connor”

Mary Flannery O’Connor, novelist, short-story writer, and essayist, was an important voice in American literature. Please join us for a discussion focusing on the fascinating collection of morally flawed characters that populate O’Connor’s well-known short stories. Two-week program meets Wednesday afternoons beginning March 28.
