Lifelong Learning Lecture Series The City of Aventura Partners with the FIU OSHER Lifelong Learning Institute These programs focus on enrichment courses in literature, art and music, current events, languages and personal growth. We are proud to introduce two inaugural classes starting in February 2014. Non-members will need to purchase a 3 month senior membership fee of $21.

The Greatest Stories Ever Sold Instructor: Dr. Caren Neile It has been said that the ability to create and appreciate stories is what makes us human. Come enjoy performances by storyteller and university instructor Caren Neile and engage in discussions of her unique interpretations of some of the world’s greatest stories, from Shakespeare (The Taming of the Shrew), opera (Carmen) literature (stories of Guy DeMauppasant) and folklore (various). In addition to performing, Dr. Neile will also show story related video and discuss the qualities of effective storytelling, whether in writing, on television or around the kitchen table. What makes a great story? What is the rule of three? How do writers use foreshadowing and framing to their advantage? What is the DNA of a story? Whether you wish to write, enhance your enjoyment of the writing of others, or simply be mesmerized by performance, this class and these stories will remain in your mind for years to come.

How Many “Trials of the Century” Can One Century Have? Instructor: Dr. Kurt F. Stone Seems like every couple of years, we become obsessed with what is generally called “The Trial of the Century.” But, how many “trials of the century” can one century have? The answer is “lots and lots.” This course will cover six great trials, all of which share the distinction of having been memorialized in novels, plays and even motion pictures: The trials we will review and discuss are: Leopold and Loeb (Rope and Compulsion); Sacco and Vanzetti (Sacco e Vanzetti); The Scopes “Monkey” Trial (Inherit the Wind); Adolph Eichmann (The Man in the Glass Booth); Leo Frank (They Won’t Forget); and The Thaw-White Nesbitt Trial (The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing Ragtime).
