UH Senior Citizen Happenings

Senior Citizen Happenings, sponsored by the City of University Heights, are open to all senior citizens. Events take place on Thursdays at 2 p.m. at the University Heights Library. To receive the monthly schedule by e-mail, call 216-932-7800, ext. 205, or send an e-mail to info@universityheights.com.

July 7: Melanie Hogan, director of LEAP (Linking Employment, Abilities and Potential) will discuss her work helping people with disabilities to transition effectively to normal life in the community.

July 14: Henry Adams, Ph.D., professor of art history at Case Western Reserve University, will conduct a conversation with Peter van Dijk, a world-renowned architect who has played a major role in the historic renovation of Cleveland.

July 21: Kimberly Emmons, Ph.D., a Case Western Reserve University professor and director of its writing programs, will read the Oxford English Dictionary. She often does this just for fun--believe it or not--and probes the evolution of words for critical insights into our ever-changing world.

July 28: On the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, Jean Feerick, Ph.D., professor of English at John Carroll University, will recount some of his achievements, such as writing 37 plays and 152 sonnets of enduring beauty and meaning, and introducing about 1,700 words into the English language.

[Note: As the University Heights Library begins its extensive renovation on Aug. 1, Senior Happenings will move to the Council Chambers at University Heights City Hall, 2300 Warrensville Center Road.]
