Lifelong Learning Classes Offered for Crane’s Mill Residents

Each lecture is led by a local college professor who specializes in the given topic and visits Crane’s Mill for our residents’ benefit.

Lifelong Learning at Crane's MillToday, Crane’s Mill will residents begin the first of this season’s Lifelong Learning educational series. Consisting of six, two-hour lectures, the spring semester includes a variety of topics from history to the arts.

The first lecture, presented by Drew University Literature professor Chris Nugent, will focus on “Arthurian Legends.” Residents will get take a scholarly look at King Arthur, the Round Table, and how these stories developed over the years.

Later in March, Douglas Simon, also of Drew University, will visit to examine the question, “Is the Post-WWII International System in Danger of Collapse?” Surely the residents will provide ideal audience for Professor Simon, as most came of age around the time of World War II and continue to learn and grow some 70-plus years later.

Check back soon for an overview of the April and June sessions, and be sure to send us an email to let us know any topics you would like our director of community programming to explore for the fall 2019 semester.
