The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning at Hodges University will host a free lecture on both modern and ancient Egypt
. The session will be conducted at the Barrington Terrace Learning Center, 5175 Tamiami Trail East, in Naples, on Monday, November 1 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
Travelers have been fascinated by the civilization of Egypt since ancient times. This class will provide some background information on modern Egypt before traveling back in time to highlight the accomplishments, art and architecture of this fabled land, called “The Gift of the Nile.”
The free session will be conducted by Carol Jonson. Ms. Jonson, who has a bachelor and master’s degrees in English Literature from Wayne State University in Detroit, was one of the first facilitators to teach with the Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning. She teaches classes ranging from literature and humanities to art history and classical mythology. In 2010, she was honored by Hodges University for 15 years of volunteer service.
The lecture is free of charge. For more information, please contact Christine Wheeler at (239) 598-6133.
