Explore the life of the honeybee in and out of the hive. Instructor Victoria Dluzen McIntyre is an amateur apiarist whose love of honeybees comes to her naturally - her family name 'dluzen' means 'keeper of the bees' in Polish. Known as 'The Bee Lady', Victoria has travelled around southeastern Michigan giving talks (The Bee Lady Talks) to schools, garden clubs, and civic groups. Come and learn about the mysteries of the hive and how 50,000 bees work together for one common good.

 1-3 p.m.  Online 

"Shakespeare's Poetry": Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (50+).

  community member   < less OLLI Study Groups

This study group will be online. Many of us have encountered the plays of William Shakespeare, but fewer of us are as familiar with his poetry. In this course, we will set aside the Bard's stage productions to read and analyze Shakespeare's lyric and narrative poetry. We will discuss a selection of The Sonnets in addition to The Phoenix and the Turtle, A Lover's Complaint, Venus and Adonis, and Lucrece. No previous experience with poetry or Shakespearean language is required. The Oxford edition of "The Complete Sonnets and Poems" is the recommended edition. Instructor Margo Kolenda-Mason is a Ph.D. Candidate in the English Department at the University of Michigan. When she is not teaching, she researches medieval and early modern literature. The study group will be held on Fridays from October 23 through November 13. Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
Online. Online. $30. 734-998-9351. Olli.info@umich.edu https://www.olli-umich.org
