By registering here, you will get information on our upcoming workshops in the next few weeks. The schedule for our workshops has not been determined yet, but OLLI will be holding workshops with professional storytellers on both campuses throughout the month of March to support anyone who is thinking about sharing their story at the Take a Stand event. We'll have an orientation session in early March (date, time, and place to be determined). By registering here, you will receive information on the orientation session. At the orientation session, you will get more information on the Take a Stand Event and details on the upcoming workshops. There is no commitment to tell your story at the Take a Stand event - you are welcome to join us even if you just want to hone your storytelling skills.  Questions? Email OLLI member Suzanne Farrand at s.farrand@sbcglobal.net  Take a Stand is part of One Book One Northwestern which is a campus-wide reading program held at Northwestern University every year. In addition to campus-wide events, OLLI expands and supplements the program with events open to all OLLI members.

This workshop is in Chicago. If you have ever hesitated to become a Discussion Leader, this workshop is for you. Led by experienced coordinators, this hands-on workshop will give you opportunities to write questions on short readings, discuss effectiveness of those questions with other participants and share ideas on how to improve them.
