“…spacious skies and amber waves of grain….” Let’s tour our beautiful America with an in-depth study of American authors, including special projects and tasting the huge variety of American cuisine – no, not “have it your way” stuff, but regional specialties…crab cakes from Maryland, Mexi-Cali tacos, Southern Ham and Grits….
We’re going to sail the Mississippi River with Mark Twain, make our hair stand on end with Edgar Allan Poe (Baltimore, MD), and weep with O. Henry. We’ll delve into many other American authors to deepen our study of our rich heritage.
Come join us for all the fun!!
