Seminar: Books that Touched Our Lives   

Calling all book lovers for a conversation about books we fondly remember. "Great" literature ("The Bible," "Don Quixote," "Hamlet") aside, what books changed your perspective, gave you unexpected insights, delivered an "aha" moment, or just spoke volumes? Join Dr. Margery Marcus to discuss those special books that touched YOU. Dr. Marcus will discuss her choices, which include the Romantic potboiler "Mistress of Mellyn" by Victoria Holt, "The Women's Room" by Marilyn French, Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird," and John Irving's "A Prayer for Owen Meany." Bring the names of your favorite titles to share with the audience and leave with a list of books to add to your bookshelf.

"Margery is always a delight to listen too, knowledgeable, well organized, and a very good speaker". - OLLI Patron
