Sewanee Seminars for Lifelong Learning, Jan. 4

In planning your cultural activities for the new year, please plan to attend Sewanee Seminars for Lifelong Learning on Thursday, Jan. 4, at noon. The sessions are held in Lower Cravens, on Kentucky Avenue, in Sewanee.
Pamela Macfie will present the program on “In Shakespeare’s Eternal Company.” Responding to an invitation to address what accounts for Shakespeare’s enduring appeal, Macfie will offer a talk that engages how richly, and in many ways how seamlessly, even unconsciously, some of Shakespeare’s most compelling speeches have become part of our own vocabularies of love and loss. Her presentation will include some opportunities for audience members to speak certain lines, all in the spirit of being in Shakespeare’s company.
She is the English Department Chair at the University of the South. She teaches courses on Dante, Shakespeare and Renaissance Poetry. She is married to Tom Macfie, the University Chaplain.
Please plan to arrive at Lower Cravens in time to enjoy coffee and cookies, and to greet friends and neighbors. The talk will begin promptly at noon and last one hour. Parking is available in the Tennessee Williams parking lot. Be sure to park so that your license plate is clearly visible to the campus police.
Membership dues for Lifelong Learning are $12 per year. New members are always welcome. A $2 per session option is also available. Please call Anne Davis at (931) 924-4465 for more information.
