“Hanging Onto Hope” – Linda Singer Froning, Administrative Tech & Sustainability Student

Many of us are committed to finding sustainable solutions to some of the problems that are affecting our planet. Learning so much about the state of our world and how much needs to be done can leave us heartbroken and unable to move forward. What tools can we use to heal ourselves while we work to heal the planet?

To learn more, call 963-2172. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no charge and no need to R.S.V.P.

Immerse yourself in the literature of the Anglo-Saxons, a migratory, Germanic people caught between two worlds in the land of middle-earth: their ancestral homeland on the North Sea and the green isle of Britain. Explore the boundaries between strength and frailty, allegiance and honor and the isolation of exile: the fleeting transience of a short life and the hope of eternal rest: the fellowship of kinfolk and the bitterness of blood-feuds; the rise of usurpers and the fall of virtuous retainers. Experience epic poetry, elegis, riddles, sacred texts and historical prose while contemplating the identity of a civilized people that lived over a thousand years ago. This course will be offered twice, once from 2/20-3/6 and again from 3/20-4/10. Different texts will be read in each course, so students can take either course or both. Meets Thursdays, 2/20-3/6. Cost: $118. Refund date: 2/18.
