The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University will host a free lecture on the art and architecture of Sicily. The lecture will be held at
the Barrington Terrace Learning Center, 5175 Tamiami Trail East, in Naples on Monday, May 14 from 1:00 pm to 2:30pm.
Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, has a rich and unique culture that extends beyond its colonization by the Greeks in the 8th century BC. This class will explore some of the island’s history, its important archaeological sites, its architecture, art and one of its crowning glories: centuries of glowing mosaics.
Instructing the free lecture will be Carol Jonson. She has been an instructor with The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University since 1996. She has served on the CLL Advisory Board since its inception. Carol earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English literature from Wayne State University in Detroit, and did post-graduate work in Medieval and Renaissance English at the University of Detroit. In 1995, she retired from a career in health care communications and marketing. Carol is currently a consultant and freelance writer.
