Middlesex Community College will host best-selling author David S. Brody during the fall Opening Session of MILES (Middlesex Institute for Lifelong Education for Seniors) at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, in the Bedford Campus Center’s Café East, 591 Springs Road. The event is free and open to the public.
MCC’s MILES program offers stimulating, interactive daytime seminars and workshops – with no term papers, tests or grades – for active, older adults ages 55+. This Opening Session provides community members an opportunity to learn more about MILES and the courses being offered – and is a good opportunity to meet instructors and peers. Light refreshments will be served.
Brody is a best-selling fiction writer and author of 10 novels. His children call him a “rock nerd” because of the time he spends studying ancient stone structures, which he believes offer evidence of pre-Columbus exploration of America.
A graduate of Tufts University and Georgetown Law School, Brody has appeared as a guest expert on documentaries that have aired on the History Channel, the Travel Channel, PBS, and the Discovery Channel. All seven books in his “Templars in America” series have been Amazon Kindle Top 10 best sellers. He lives in Westford with his wife, sculptor Kimberly Scott.
MILES Fall 2018 Session runs Monday through Thursday, Oct. 11 through Nov. 26, on the Bedford campus. Most study groups meet from 2 to 4 p.m., in one-, two- or five-week sessions, and are facilitated by individuals with expertise in their field, including some MCC faculty and staff. Workshops and seminars focus on a variety of topics, including art, the environment, health, history, literature, movies, nature, and technology.
Each MILES course is $15 – with a maximum of $95 for the semester if you register for seven or more courses. All MILES participants enjoy free use of the MCC Fitness Center and library.
