We're excited to announce three new additions to our summer class line-up. First, introduce your child to the craft of storytelling. In Making Connections, children ages 6 through 8 will create artwork that encourages a connection between their personal experiences and the central ideas embedded in several picture books. Next, discuss how different writers approach the elastic and eclectic form of short fiction, The Contemporary Short Story. Lastly, learn how women won the right to vote and what they have done with that right in the 96 years since women’s suffrage became the law of the land in Celebrating Women Voting.
K. Riva Levinson worked tirelessly alongside Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, paving the way for Sirleaf becoming the president of Liberia and first woman elected to lead an African nation. Sirleaf was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2007, the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011, and the Indira Gandhi Prize for Peace, Disarmament and Development in 2012. For this event, Levinson and President Sirleaf will discuss the journey through civil turmoil and to building a democratic Liberia.

Politics & Prose invites you to join us for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Cape Town, South Africa, often named one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Spend seven days getting to know a city steeped in history and culture, where the complexities of the distant past sit side by side the more recent political and social changes.
Join other congenial travelers who love books and writing for a stay at Castello di Spannocchia, a 16th-century hilltop villa that overlooks 1100 acres of forest, fields, pasture, organic fruit and olive orchards, vineyards, and sheep grazing on the hillside.
Explore Tuscany and its central hill towns. Our base will be in Siena, with its spectacular Duomo, winding narrow streets and central Campo, perfect for an evening drink and people-watching. Outside of Siena is Tuscany’s agricultural heart, with its familiar rolling hills and dark cypresses.
