Take a peek into the lives of Winston and Clementine Churchill
Again this fall, Case Western Reserve University's Department of Continuing Education is sponsoring a class in Bay Village. These courses are great in that there are no exams, no papers, no credits, hence no stress – just interesting. An opportunity to meet like-minded people, participate in stimulating discussions, and be led by a seasoned professional. And, may I add, ofttimes fun!
The fall session's topic is Winston and Clementine Churchill, two people whose lives had a great impact on the United States and indeed our country yet today. Two new biographies present fresh, contemporary perspectives on Winston and his wife, Clementine, who was indispensable to his life and important to Great Britain.
Discuss their unique personalities, fascinating marriage and critical contributions to their nation. Compare and contrast with the lives of the Roosevelts. We will be reading: "The Churchill Factor: How One Man Made History," by Boris Johnson, and "Clementine: The Life of Mrs. Winston Churchill," by Sonia Purcell.
Class meets at Bay United Methodist Church, corner of Lake and Bassett roads, on Mondays from 10-11:30 a.m. beginning Sept. 24, for eight weeks. We meet in the second floor parlor across from the sanctuary.
The cost ranges from $84 to $100 depending on level of membership chosen. Information on this can be found by calling 216-368-2090 or online at case.edu/lifelonglearning. You may also contact Marianne at 440-808-0076 or Lynn at 440-826-0658.
if you wish to get a head start on the reading, peruse the first 70 pages of the "Clementine" book for our first session or two. Books are available online, at Amazon.com, at libraries, book stores and Half Price Books in North Olmsted.
