MSUWonderlust Spr15-PRINT Page 11 Image 0002COURSE INFO: In February, 1910, a 28-year-old Virginia Woolf joined her brother and four companions to pull a daring prank on the most powerful maritime force in the world: the British Navy. Thirty years later, in the darkest days of World War II, Woolf told the story in public for the first time. This Side Trip offers a ripping good yarn with a lot of humor as well as some serious thoughts about being a pacifist in a time of war.

INSTRUCTOR BIO: Danell Jones is a writer, scholar, and teacher. She received her Ph.D. from Columbia University. She has published widely on Virginia Woolf including The Virginia Woolf Writers’ Workshop: Seven Lessons to Inspire Great Writing.

Kathryn Earley 2When my husband and I were looking for our place to retire, one of the places we visited was Bozeman.  While we were here we went to the library, where I happened to pick up a Wonderlust brochure.  Here was university-quality instruction by experts in a huge number of subjects.  No homework, no exams, no papers, just a chance to learn new things or review things we’d already studied.  It was also an opportunity to meet people with a wide variety of interests.  I was hooked! Over the past several years, I’ve come to feel strongly about supporting this valuable community resource for lifelong learning, and fortunately there’s a community of dedicated volunteers who feel the same way.

This past year was our first as Friends of MSU Wonderlust, whose mission is to support and promote MSU Wonderlust.  We’ve contributed funds to getting a new projector at Hope Lutheran Church, where many of our classes are held, and to Gallatin Community Radio, which broadcasts many of our Friday Forums.  We’re also sponsors of and taking part in Active Aging Week and the Prime Age 50+ Expo.

In January Friends will sponsor the MSU Wonderlust reception.  Join us at the Country Bookshelf on January 9, 5 pm – 7 pm, where you can meet instructors and other people interested in learning.
