Unravel 'Masterpiece' mysteries this spring in Westlake

Case Western Reserve University's Off-Campus Studies program is offering you the opportunity to become a sleuth, with "The Moonstone: A Masterpiece Mystery," March 22-May 20, 10:00-11:30 a.m., at Westlake United Methodist Church, 27650 Center Ridge Road. The leader-teacher is Cheryl Wires.

Wilkie Collins created the very first detective to appear in a novel-length mystery, Sergeant Cuff in "The Moonstone" (1868). Cuff is called to an English country house to investigate the disappearance of a sacred diamond. Charles Dickens began a rival tale with "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" (1870). Edwin is engaged to young, sheltered Rosa, but his devoted uncle, Jasper, loves her – in a mad, menacing manner. Both mysteries are built on dark secrets, double lives, and– how germane today – opium addictions. These classic mysteries are the subjects of intriguing "Masterpiece Theater" adaptations.

Westlake book group to study the power of myth

Case Western University’s Off-Campus Studies program is presenting "The Power of Myth" in Westlake this fall. Joseph Campbell's classic cross-cultural study of a hero's journey has inspired millions and opened up new areas of research and exploration. Originally published in 1949, "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" hit the New York Times best-seller list in 1988 when it became the subject of "The Power of Myth," a PBS television special.

The first popular work to combine the spiritual and psychological insights of modern psychoanalysis with the archetypes of world mythology, the book creates a roadmap for navigating the frustrating path of contemporary life. Examining heroic myths in the light of modern psychology, it considers not only the patterns and stages of mythology but also its relevance to our lives today – and to the life of any person seeking a fully realized existence.
