South Coast Senior College

Book Talk

with Arlene Jackson


We are trying something new this September.  We will be combining two classes that will be reading  the following books for eight weeks.  This will be a ZOOM class that will meet on Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m. beginning on September 8.  The members should sign up with their respective administration offices (either York County Senior College or South Coast Senior College).  Registration and course costs should be paid accordingly.  Each person will receive their invitation to the course on Tuesday afternoon.  Both colleges will work together In administering the course.  The course will be available to 15 students from each school. 

Here is the list of books and when the discussion will occur.  You have been given the list so that you are not hurried in reading the books.  This class will meet every 2 weeks with the idea of leisurely reading during the summer.

Both classes have been separate but it is now time to bring them together and share their love of discussion and books.  When you get 30 people together who are probably 60 to 80, years old, “hang on for the joyous sharing of opinions and experiences”.  Hope to see you there.
