Name: NIU LLI: Indelible: A Study of Photographs We Won’t Let Fade Away Part 3: Images from the ‘80s and ‘90s
Date: April 11, 2023
Time: 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM CDT
This spring, we will cull through images from the ‘80s and ‘90s, revisiting some of the key news events of those times. Many of these photos will light up our own recollections of past headlines and help us recall what mattered most to us from those years. Convener: Joe Gastiger was pastor at the First Congregational Church, UCC, in DeKalb for almost twenty years before retiring in 2020. Prior to ministry, he taught English classes at NIU and coordinated the University Honors Program. These days he chairs the city’s Human Relations Commission. Joe has led about a dozen study groups for LLI and has published three books of poetry. This class takes place on Tuesdays, April 11, 25, May 2, and May 9. There will be no class on April 18. The NIU Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI), established in 2000, is a member-directed group of individuals primarily age 50 plus who enjoy learning in informal, flexible, non-competitive groups and like connecting with peers who share their interests. No grades, no tests – just Learning for the Fun of It.
