Social Just Movements Short Course at the Main Library

In 1776, Americans declared independence and broke away from the British monarchy. Yet today, we seem to be more fascinated with the “royals” than ever before. In this six-part Short Course, University of Louisville History Professor John McLeod will delve into the saga of the British royal family through the 200 years since Queen Victoria’s birth in 1819. Explore the lives of queens, kings, princesses, and princes against a backdrop of profound changes in Britain and throughout the world.

Dr. Fabian Crespo, Associate Professor of Anthropology and the University of Louisville

Conquering Cravings

Main Library, Monday, April 22, 6:30 p.m.

Social Just Movements Short Course at the Main Library

All of us go into new beginnings (or the New Year) with great enthusiasm and the best of intentions. Things go well for a while, but when "real life" happens, we tend to fall back into what is comfortable and easy. To truly conquer cravings, we have to make some lasting changes. Health coach Kathie Cude will be on hand at the Main Library on Monday, April 22, at 6:30 p.m. to help us understand why we have cravings, the positive intentions behind them, and the choices one can exercise to help beat those cravings for good.

This MyLibraryU Fast Class is free and open to the public, but registration is requested. Patrons can call (502) 574-1623 to sign up.
