September Senior Citizen Happenings
Senior Citizen Happenings are sponsored by the City of University Heights. Events take place on Thursdays at 2 p.m., at the University Heights Library.
Sept. 6: Connie Luhta, president of International Women’s Air and Space Museum, outlines the fabulous feats of women in aviation and space history, including Amelia Earhart, the World War II WASPs, the Wright brothers’ sister Katharine, and more.
Sept. 13: Eric Schreiber, M.D., diagnostic radiologist at Cleveland Clinic and director of Ohio Environmental Council, documents “An Emergency in Slow Motion,” reflecting the history of climate science, global warming and population growth, and sounding a concern for change occurring more rapidly than initially anticipated.
Sept. 20: Fern Ruth Levy, M.S., educator, journalist, and founder and director of the Anne Frank Moral Courage Project, probes the spirit of the 15-year old diarist, victim of Nazi anti-Semitism, who keenly felt, “how wonderful it is that no one has to wait, but can start right now to gradually change the world.”
Sept. 27: Mary Ann Whitley, UH resident and copy editor for the Plain Dealer, discusses her book, Ohio Tales of the Titanic: the Buckeye State’s Fascinating Connections to the World’s Most Famous Shipwreck. Grounded in research, the book contains interviews with descendants of survivors, and is sensitive to the human element of the tragedy.
