Winston Comes to Ryerson
The Life Institute at Ryerson University is offering a course on “The Life and Times of Winston Churchill” who a BBC poll selected as the greatest Briton of the 20th century. Although many people consider 1940 as his finest hour, this course will show that he was truly a renaissance man – orator, writer, historian, artist, as well as politician and war leader. The course will survey the late Victorian era to the atomic age through the events and people of Churchill’s life.
It will be taught on Wednesday afternoons during February and March by John Plumpton, a former president of The Churchill Centre and director of the Churchill Society for the Advancement of Parliamentary Democracy. He presently tweets on Churchill’s daily activities @churchilltoday. Registration is only online and begins at 7:00 a.m. on December 11, 2012. Many courses fill up within an hour.
