Registration under way for Coastal Senior College winter classes
Coastal Senior College challenges people to ward off those post-holiday blues by selecting a class from an array of regular and on-going gatherings. Classes begin in January and February and meet throughout the week.
Visit coastalseniorcollege.org for individual start dates and complete course descriptions as well as directions to the various course locations in the Midcoast.
Classes are taught by both first-time and returning instructors and reflect a wide variety of interests. “Could Japan Have Won?” presented by new instructor Charles Brockunier, examines Japanese, American and British strategies in World War II in the Pacific Theater, looking for ironies, missed opportunities, blunders and the "fickle finger of fate." The Puzzles of Jesus’ Birth and Childhood, Interactive Study of Transportation at Owls Head Transportation Museum, and Taking Your Family History Research to the Next Level are a few more of the interesting array of classes.
The list continues with Poetry: Windows and Mirrors, Aristotle Meets Molecular Biology, Creating Your Family Cookbook, Maine’s Natural History, Bach and the Best of the Rest of the Baroque, Lunch with the Junior League, The Application of Strategic ‘Intelligence’ in the 21st Century and The Story of You: Gathering The Story You Have Within You (Continued). Folk Architecture of the World, presented by another first-time Coastal Senior College instructor, Arnold J. Aho, will lead students in studying the relationships between natural and cultural contexts and their influences on traditional folk building forms throughout the world .
Four on-going groups and a special two-day event free to Coastal Senior College members complete the list. Writers’ Group, CSC Coffee House, Watch and Talk, and a new group Challenge of Change, are on-going, and a Knox County History Outreach Event about the Penobscot Marine Museum meets for two days in January in Thomaston.
