Rebel Women: Famous 19th-Century Female Authors
In the rigid world of England in the 1800s, a number of brilliant women authors emerged who challenged the hierarchy of male-dominated literature. Trace the lives and great works of Jane Austen, Beatrix Potter, the Bronte Sisters and George Eliot to learn their importance as authors who challenged the narrow options available to women of their era.

Fairy Tales for Adults: Wisdom for the Young at Heart
Fairy tales we remember from childhood contain psychological insights. But every culture also has tales meant for the second half of life that point us to wisdom and fulfillment. Explore and discuss new wisdom found in old stories.

Hitchcock and His Players: Life and Work of an Enigmatic Genius
Explore the life and work of master director Alfred Hitchcock, whose films continue to fascinate audiences worldwide, with special attention to four of his principle players: Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly. See how this genius behind the camera often formed tumultuous relationships with his actors, writers and producers and how his personality shaped the structure of his films.
