Mind-blowing Stories: Tales that are Amazing, Challenging, and True
Stories that are out the usual
This group will engage true stories that force us to think in new and unexpected ways about basic categories of human experience. To say it differently, these stories blow our minds. The stories include: Rubinstein, the “mad jester” of the Warsaw Ghetto; Chang and Eng: the original “Siamese twins’’; and American philosopher William James’s mysterious (to him) mystical experience in the Adirondack forest. Participants are invited to bring in stories that they believe have the same “mind-blowing” potential. Hank Greenspan is a psychologist, oral historian, essayist, and playwright recently retired from a teaching career at UM. He believes that to live is to schmooze. And to schmooze is to teach and to learn, together. The Study Group for those 50 and over is held Tuesdays January 21 through February 25 (no class Feb. 18).
