    I love to learn. It’s become something of an obsession, honestly; inspired by last year’s reboot of Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson, my predominant personal reading has gone from fiction and literature to nonfiction and science. There is something addictive about learning. The world – the universe – is vast, and there is so much to know about so much! So, if you, too, have the learning bug, this is for you: the library’s series of Fast Classes and Short Courses.

    The first Fast Class is tonight, Tuesday, January 27. James O’Connor will be teaching “Kick Off, Louisville,” all about football – or soccer, for you Americans out there. Louisville now has its own professional soccer team, and O’Connor will be informing interested parties all about it, as well as the game’s rules and history. O’Connor is a former professional footballer and coach of Louisville City FC. This class takes place from 6:00-7:30 at the library’s Main branch.

    Next up chronologically is the short course “Bach to the Future.” Eugene and Sharon Levery, who hold degrees from Julliard School of Music, will be teaching about Western composers from Bach to Gershwin, their history, and the impact they have had on the world. This college-level short course begins Thursday, February 19, and will continue on Thursday evenings until March 19.

    Return on Tuesday, February 24 for another fast class: “Writing an Advanced Directive,” taught by Dr. Edward C. Wunsch, a licensed clinical social worker and medical ethicist. He will be teaching the properties of writing a living will, which participants will be able to take home. This class is also at the Main branch at 6:00.

    All courses are free but require registration to attend. Call 502-574-1635 to register, and check out the library website for complete information.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
