The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University will host a free lecture on the ancient Near East. The lecture will be held at
the Barrington Terrace Learning Center, 5175 Tamiami Trail East, in Naples on Monday, December 5 from 1:00 pm to 3:00pm.
The class will focus on the debt Western Civilization owes to Greece and Rome. The West learned a surprising number of things about science, math, art and literature from the many cultures of the Ancient Near East, beginning with the Sumerians and Babylonians. This lecture will explore these achievements and how they affect civilization today.
The program will be conducted by Carol Jonson. Ms. Jonson has served on the CLL Advisory Board since its inception. She earned her BA and MA 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 and is currently a consultant and freelance writer.
This program is free of charge and open to the public. No pre-registration is required. For more information, please contact Sarah Eldridge at (239) 598-6210.
