Springtime in Savannah is always a welcome thing, even when we’ve had a mild winter! This is partly due to events such as the advent of azaleas and the excitement of St. Patrick’s Day. It is also because The Learning Center begins anew with more courses, lectures, and other educational programming for you!
Perhaps the most high-profile event of the spring is our May 13 event, Echoes of the Civil War: How America Has Remembered. Scholars with impressive credentials and national reputations will be in Savannah for an exclusive day-long symposium, all at the invitation of The Learning Center. David Blight, Fitz Brundage, Kathleen Clark, Karen Cox, and Laura McCarty convene for an unforgettable day at the Coastal Georgia Center. Details are on page 17.
This is a day of engaging lectures, extended question-and-answer periods, and a greater understanding of how the American people at different times and at different places have used the memory of the war to fulfill a wide variety of purposes. While TLC members have spent a year understanding the Civil War and Reconstruction, this expedition into the Civil War and American memory over the past 150 years is perhaps the most telling about the society in which we live today. You won’t want to miss it!
Of course, more typical programming marches right on, not only at Bull Street, but also in the form of two special lecture programs at Skidaway Island on two Mondays in April. Roger Smith speaks on the châteaux of the Loire Valley, and Andy Vaught returns with a fascinating lecture on Central Park.
Wednesdays at TLC are filled once again with interesting multi-week courses and a line-up of midday lectures that will fill your springtime with thought-provoking subjects. Mary Sprague returns with more short fiction, while Richard Braithwaite engages some well-known poets. Robert Pawlicki unveils his new book on happiness with a course on personal well being, and Melinda Stein explores Mormonism. New additions to TLC’s offerings include a reading discussion course on integration in America, using the text Some of My Best Friends Are Black (Gene Johnson facilitates), and Sally Rountree Klein leads an intensive journey into the world of personality type – yours!
