Coffee Time: The Legacy of Humor in Ohio

August 06, 2019 10:00-11:30 a.m. Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber Auditorium

Ohio has a roster of talent in the humor category unlike just about any other state. Why, you might ask? Is it the inherent humor of being neither-coastal? Does that make someone see humor as a way to get through bleak winters and endless fields of corn and professional sports teams that can’t win? Or is the cause of this rich repository of wit as simple as wonderful talents thriving in the heartland of America since the heartland is, in and of itself, pretty funny. Humor is very subjective, and this talk will discuss how the individual humorists—be it writer, cartoonist, comic—always bring their homeland—their heart-land—to their work, and that means that tomorrow’s humorists are working right here, right now in Ohio.

Susanne Jaffe, on the Speakers Bureau of the Ohio Humanities Council, will route us through Ohio’s rich repository of wit.

 

What is Coffee Time?

Coffee Time is a FREE event that provides an opportunity to learn something new, be entertained or informed about a topic or issue affecting adults. Monthly, Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber offers freshly-baked breakfast refreshments and coffee at 10 a.m., followed by a scheduled speaker at 10:30 a.m. in the auditorium.

To RSVP or if you have questions, contact Michelle Vance at 614.228.8888 or mvance@ohioliving.org. You may also RSVP via the form below.

A Trio Film Experience

August 08, 2019 1-3:30pm Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber Auditorium

 

 

 

 

 

 

Films can provide a wonderful medium to learn about  ourselves and about life. Unfortunately, society often paints a picture of aging in a negative light. A Trio Film Experience is a FREE and intentional program to counter the prevailing notion of aging as a “decline” and instead, considers the possibility of late-life transformation, integrity and transcendence. 

With the themes and structure of ElderQuest—the annual eight-week film study in partnership with the Lifelong Learning Institute—each  film session will conclude with a facilitated discussion. Join us as we explore three different films. All are welcome.

 

August 8: Steel Magnolias

August 15: Five Flights Up

August 22: The Journey

 

To register, contact Michelle Vance at 614.228.8888 or mvance@ohioliving.org or fill out the form below.
