Enjoy three cozy evenings around the fireplace at the Hotel McCall library with three brilliant minds who offered a fledgling America new ways to think - Ralph Waldo Emerson in January, Henry David Thoreau in February, and Walt Whitman in March. Their writing was unconventional, shocking, and controversial at the time - it is your inheritance today. Emerson was a scholar of philosophy, religion, literature, history, and science. A prolific writer and popular lecturer, his influence on the American sense of identity cannot be underestimated. Thoreau was perceived in his lifetime as an idle ne’er-do-well. In fact, he was a dedicated scholar and deeply committed scientist. His days spent walking culminated in copious field notes, journal entries, essays, and books. Remember those vivid and brutal characters in Scorsese’s Gangs of New York? Whitman knew those guys. He was on the streets rather than protected by the idyllic peace of Concord. His brash, physical, and deeply spiritual poetry brought a nascent American literature a genuine American voice. Attend one evening or all three. We will read, discuss, wonder, and depart with a deeper appreciation of our identity and inheritance as Americans. Facilitator Renee Silvus is a local educator, therapist, and business owner. She has 17-years worth of experience teaching English to high school students. Guests staying at Hotel McCall may attend at no cost and may drop in. Registration Required

Join Kyle Peterson, UI Extension STEAM program intern to explore computer coding, art, and robots in this fun one-day workshop. Learning computer programming code is like learning a new language. Come and play with the OzoBots and learn basic coding sequences that use drawings as “visual language.” The robots will follow your commands based on the drawings you create!
