LLI: Tales from Texas with Convener Jean Callary

Y’all come and get acquainted with some of the folks who left their mark on Texas politics and culture in the 1990s. The convener, a Texan since 2015, will read from works by Ann Richards, Molly Ivins, Baxter Black, John Caro (LBJ’s biographer) and poet Dave Oliphant, a native Texan and NIU Ph.D. An accompanying slideshow will share pictures of the Lone Star State’s art, nature, industry and people. 

Convener: Jean Callary holds a B.A., M.S.Ed. and Ed.D. from Northern Illinois University. She retired after 20 years with NIU Career Services. She became a Texan, along with her husband, Edward, when they moved to Austin to be near grandchildren. She is a freelance writer and editor.

The NIU Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI), established in 2000, is a member-directed group of individuals primarily age 50 plus who enjoy learning in informal, flexible, non-competitive groups and like connecting with peers who share their interests. No grades, no tests – just Learning for the Fun of It.
