The heart of historical study is both a SCIENCE and an ART. To be interesting, facts must be accompanied with compelling storytelling. And all too often ‘official versions’ limit our understanding of history.

Our personal experiences can add to the narrative and make history come to life. You are welcome to enjoy our guest speakers and join in our lively discussions. Bring your history topics for our class to explore!
