A free early literacy program which encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she begins kindergarten!

The program entails reading any book to your newborn, infant and/or toddler before they start kindergarten.  It may sound hard to do, but it really is not! If you read just one book a night together, you will have read 365 books in a year!  That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years!  There are no restrictions as to which book you read or how many times you read it!  It can include books read to your child by a teacher, a sibling, or during Story Time.  Each experience counts as a book read!

Fact & Myth in Psychology

Which of these should you believe and which should you doubt? Old people aren’t interested in sex. Money can’t buy happiness. You can believe media reports of medical breakthroughs. Lie detectors work. We only use 10% of our brains. ESP is real. Some people are born gay. Hypnosis is powerful. We repress bad memories.  Examine these and more with Dr. Gordon Hammerle, adjunct professor at Siena Heights University and professor emeritus at Adrian College, and there may be some surprising answers.

Adventure on the Rhine River
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

We will take a pictorial tour along the Rhine River from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam, exploring several cities along the way with their historic buildings and vineyards with world traveler Dr. Andy Jorgensen. We begin in Basel visiting a quaint pharmaceutical museum which includes a replica of an alchemist’s laboratory. The city boasts many other important venues, such the 17th century Kunstmuseum, which is the first publicly available museum for art in the world. Another stop is Strasbourg with its timber-framed homes and businesses, including Reisling wineries. The nationality of this town depended upon which country won the last war, Germany or France, so it is quite multicultural. A long stretch of the river includes dozens of castles, some decaying and others thriving. A high point will be a visit to the striking Gothic cathedral in Cologne. Touring this area would not be complete without peeking into a working Dutch windmill. These massive structures pump water to prevent flooding in much of the country.

Dr. Jorgensen is Professor Emeritus at the University of Toledo. He has spent considerable time living and studying in Europe over the past several decades.

Follow the Drinking Gourd: Underground Railroad
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Few periods of United States history are more important and less understood than the years leading to the Civil War. That is particularly true of the Underground Railroad. The origin of the term is unclear; a slavecatcher is believed to have uttered the phrase “the slaves disappeared, like they had boarded a railway underground.” The proximity to Canada via the Detroit River put Michigan on the map of Underground Railroad routes. Washtenaw County was the next to the last stop before arriving at the river. For many, it was the most dangerous point of the journey, since the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 made it a crime to harbor “runaways.” Join us as we follow one family’s story with historian Rochelle Balkam.

Balkam taught history and government at Ypsilanti High School for 36 years, and taught Michigan history at Eastern Michigan University (EMU) for 27 years. She holds an M.A. degree in history and an M.S. in historic preservation from EMU. Rochelle serves on the board of the Michigan One-Room Schoolhouse Association, and formerly served on the board of the Historical Society of Michigan and the Ann Arbor Historic Commission.

Barbie: Extraordinary Toy Icon Part I on Zoom
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

 

The most popular doll on the planet, Barbie, is still going strong after 65 years! Barbie has proven she still creates social buzz with the “pink summer” surrounding the 2023 release of her first live-action movie. Along the way she has significantly impacted social values in pop culture by modeling female independence, has been the subject of social controversy, run for U.S. President six times, literally travelled into space twice – AND has done it all looking great, in the latest fashions. Not bad, given that everyone except her creator was sure she would be a failure from the start. Mattel reports that there is a Barbie sold somewhere in the world every second. Millions of girls own and play with Barbies, and she has hundreds of thousands of collectors around the world. Perhaps you played with Barbie or are a collector yourself. Plan to share your thoughts about Barbie during our time together; join Barbie enthusiast Mary Bondarenko and other class members in going down memory lane with this toy icon. 

Bondarenko is a retired management trainer from a fortune 500 company. She has been active in Elderwise in Ann Arbor for seven years, and is looking forward to being back in teaching mode for the first time since retiring.

Part II of the lecture will be streamed on Zoom on Monday afternoon, August 12th from 1 p.m., to 3 p.m.

Scenic Beauty of Iceland
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

A trip to Iceland has long been on world traveler George Jabol’s bucket list. Although covering only six days, this 2023 journey proved long on extraordinary scenic beauty. The trip began with a comprehensive city tour of Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, which included visits to the iconic Hallgrimskirkja church and the Northern Lights Center, followed by an evening search for the mysterious swirling and dancing Aurora Borealis. A unique adventure followed with a visit to the Blue Lagoon, a natural pool of mineral-rich geothermal water set in the middle of a lava field in the Icelandic wilderness. A full day’s tour called the Golden Circle showcased the Thingvelir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site located where the European and North American tectonic plates meet. Another tour visited the southern coast of Iceland where there is a black sand coastline, the gorgeous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, and other stunning scenery. This active, long-awaited trip kept Jabol’s camera exceedingly busy and was truly the fulfillment of a dream. 

Jabol received his B.A. degree from Muskingum College in Ohio, and a Ph.D. in English language and literature from the University of Michigan. Fully retired now from a career with the federal government, George creates photographic slide shows as a way to remember his travels and share them with others.

The Genesis & Metamorphosis of the Michigan Militia
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Michigan militia movement began in the late 1970s, and foreshadowed the growth of the movement nationwide. As an FBI agent in Michigan, Greg Stejskal had extensive involvement with Mark Koernke, “Mark from Michigan,” one of the founders of the movement. Later Stejskal was involved in the investigation of the Oklahoma City bombing, which had a substantial Michigan connection. In this class, we will discuss these events, and how extreme elements of the militia movement have become a domestic threat, with their involvement in a plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan, and the January 6, 2023, insurrection at the United States Capitol Building in Washington D.C.

Greg Stejskal is a retired special agent of the FBI having served from 1975-2006. He has also written a book, FBI Case Files Michigan – Tales of a G-Man, chronicling some of the cases in which he was involved during his career, some involving the Michigan militia.

Native American Folklore & Legends on Zoom
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Native American writer Carole Lynn Hare, author of The Legend of Kitch-iti-kipi, will set Ojibwe legend straight.

The Kitch-iti-kipi (The Big Spring) is one of Michigan’s most popular tourist attractions. Many folk tales exist about this natural wonder found deep in the woods of the Upper Peninsula. Many of those stories were admittedly made up by John I. Bellair, a local businessman in the 1920s, in an effort to attract more visitors to the area. But what is the authentic Native American legend of Kitch-iti-kipi? Carole’s story has been passed down orally in her Native American family for more than one hundred years. Although Natives seldom write down their folklore, the author’s great-great-aunt actually did write this legend in a published booklet which was found when she passed away in 1969. That booklet was the author’s inspiration for this book. The Legend of Kitch-iti-kipi reads like a Native version of Romeo and Juliet. In it, the deep love between a handsome brave and a young maiden drives a powerful chief to act out his jealousy. The results are tragic for all three!

Artists Who Remained Creative in Their Later Years on Zoom
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Inspired by the book Last Light: How Six Great Artists Made Old Age a Time of Triumph by Richard Lacayo, this virtual class with art historian Helen Weingarten will focus on four of the artists Lacayo identifies: Titian, Goya, Monet, and Matisse. A common prejudice is that the creativity of the artist inevitably wanes in their later years. In this presentation we will not only see for ourselves great works of art produced by artists in their 60s, 70s, and 80s, but also consider these works within a historical and biographical context. 

Helen Weingarten is an emeritus associate professor in the School of Social Work at the University of Michigan. She has studied art history and literature since her undergraduate years at Cornell University, and has continued to pursue these interests during her many travels around the world.

The Biting Cold: The Story of Ojibwa Legend on Zoom
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Find out with Matt Hellman, author of The Biting Cold, if an Ojibwa legend will come to fruition.

In 1842, every resident of Copper Harbor, Michigan, disappeared without a trace. In 2019, Bill Hitze and his son Brandon make a gruesome discovery while fishing on Lake Superior that starts to shed light on the old mystery. According to Professor Stephanie Crowe, an Ojibwa legend predicts that the town's residents will be lost again. Together, Bill and Stephanie strive to discover the truth about what happened so they can protect the small tourist town. But time runs out when brutal winter weather hits Copper Harbor and awakens the ancient horror. The legend claims the evil is indestructible. The warrior Vikings who'd set foot upon these lands hundreds of years ago scrawled their advice on a stone marker: flee. With escape cut off, the residents must hide or fight. And there is nowhere to hide.

Rehabilitation Raptors
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

In this presentation Dody Wyman shares photos, videos, and narrative highlights of her more than 35 years working with these amazing birds of prey. Unfortunately, many encounter the dangers of interacting with human beings, and suffer life-altering injuries. We will have an opportunity to learn about injuries requiring rehabilitation, and the difficult decisions encountered during treatment and care. We will also delight in some of the success stories, and learn first-hand how these very special birds parent, interact, hunt, eat, and relate to our environment. With a little bit of luck, we may have a couple of special winged guests join us at the end of class.

In conjunction with Michigan Avian Experience.

Wyman found her passion for working with raptors when her life’s journey brought her to the world of wildlife rehabilitation. She has been both a rehabilitator and an educator with un-releasable injured birds. She has presented many papers on the subject at national and international conferences, and has represented the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council at a panel on wildlife rehabilitation standards at the Department of the Interior.

Unsolved Mysteries: Fahter Marquette's Many Graves on Zoom
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Jennifer McGraw, author of The Unsolved Mysteries of Father Marquette’s Many Graves, will discuss the mysteries of Father Marquette’s numerous graves.

Buried. Dug up. Buried. Dug up. The remains of Father Jacques Marquette have been traveling for three and a half centuries. Or have they?

When devoted missionary and explorer Jacques Marquette perished in 1675, he was buried on the sandy shore of Lake Michigan. Two years later, his Native American parishioners exhumed his corpse and scraped the flesh from his bones. They took his bones to St. Ignace, Michigan to be buried under a primitive mission chapel. In 1877, when thirty-nine bone fragments were found in the probable place of his grave, it was assumed his remains had been rediscovered. The bones were split up and sent to different unlikely locations, but seven bones were return and again buried. Those seven fragments were eventually dug up again by archaeologists and tested. The results were not as expected.

The Soul of Southeast Asia
1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

World traveler George Jabol will talk about his trip to Southeast Asia.

Twenty-five hours of flight time brought me to Southeast Asia – a world very different from mine in terms of cultures, languages, beliefs, foods, and people. In Phnom Penh, Cambodia, I began my journey by touring the Royal Palace complex and its Khmer-style architecture. A performance of the classic art of Apsara dancing introduced me to the ancient civilizations at Angkor Wat andAngkor Thom, whose stunning ruins speak of a glorious distant past. A sobering reminder of the recent present came with a visit to a Killing Fields site, dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives during the Khmer Rouge regime. A short flight brought me to Thailand, where I saw the elaborate temples of the Grand Palace in Bangkok as well as the ruined palaces of Ayutthaya, the former capital of Thailand. Another short flight landed me in Laos, a mountainous and scenically beautiful country where old ways predominate over modernity. A Mekong River cruise brought me to a remote village to learn how local people live. Finally I arrived in Vietnam and boarded a classic junk to explore the breathtaking scenery of Ha Long Bay. In bustling Hanoi, I attended a Water Puppet performance and rode a bicycle/rickshaw through the thriving streets and marketplaces of the city’s Old Quarter. My trip greatly deepened my understanding of and respect for the wondrous people and places of Southeast Asia.

George Jabol received his B.A. degree from Muskingum College in Ohio, and a Ph.D. in English language and literature from the University of Michigan. Fully retired now from a career with the federal government, George creates photographic slide shows as a way to remember his travels and share them with others.
