One Day University, a national adult education program, will be returning to Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich this summer, featuring sessions led by professors from American universities. Heritage’s One Day University event will take place on Sunday, August 17.
Three award-winning professors will each make a one-hour presentation at the event. During the first hour, Craig Wright, professor at Yale University, will present “What Makes Mozart Great?” Professor Jennifer Lawless of American University will follow during the second hour with “Why Public Opinion Polls Are So Often Wrong.” During the third hour Joseph Luzzi, professor at Bard College, will give his presentation, “What Makes Shakespeare Great?”
One Day University was formed in 2006 by Steve Schragis and has been offered at Tanglewood in Lenox for the past few years. The organizers began this program at Heritage Museums & Gardens last year with a packed room for all three classes. Mr. Schragis notes, “We are giving people the chance to try something new. Learn about something new to them. Perhaps they always wanted to take that class on Mozart but never had the occasion. This combines two things … a terrific vacation on Cape Cod with the opportunity to try out an intellectual pursuit.”
The event runs from 9 AM to 1 PM on August 17. The fee to attend is $159 per person. Pre-registration is recommended. To reserve a spot, call 800-300-3438 or reserve online at www.onedayu.com.
