This a continuation of "Call the Midwife: Real Memoirs" and will allow new participants to acquaint themselves with the award-winning BBC miniseries and the memoirs that inspired it while allowing continuing participants to delve deeper into Jennifer Worth's intriguing memoirs (2002-2009). Study the writings alongside their cinematic adaptation and analyze the varied themes, anecdotes, and lessons-learned that comprise her memories of East End London during the late 1950s and early 1960s. Selected readings provided in class. Senior adult and retired disabilty waivers apply. "Call the MidWife: Real Memoris" is NOT a prerequisite for this class. All are welcome.
Read and discuss the book titled "A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War: How J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis Rediscovered Faith, Friendship, and Heroism in the Cataclysm of 1914-1918" (2015) by Joseph Loconte. This historical and biographical study argues that these friends and authors managed to find new depths of faith and imaginations in the wake of a war that obliterated the spirits and minds of their surrounding generation. We will use this book as the primary text for class. Participants are encouraged to obtain a copy prior to the course start date. Religious themes will be central to the course's content. Senior adult and disabiled retiree tuition waivers apply.
