American Indians in the 20th Century

This course is based on the book, Better with Age: Creativity, Discovery & Surprise (Cove River Press, 2020). Consisting of nearly 30 selections, the collection features local writers, several of whom will read from their work as part of this course. Audience response and discussion will be central to the class. 

Session themes include Life Stories, Transition to Retirement, Empowerment through the Arts and Physical Pursuits, Reflections on Aging, and Encounters. These themes follow the sequential sections of the book. 

The book’s co-editors, Bob Bersson and Jack Greer, will facilitate our live readings and discussions. 

Robert Bersson, emeritus professor of Art and Art History at JMU, is a long-time teacher, musician, local activist, and author.

Jack Greer is an award-winning writer of fiction, poetry, and articles on the environment. He is also an accomplished percussionist and sailor, with his wife Bobbie, of the Caribbean.
After meeting during their doctoral studies in the mid-1970s, Bersson and Greer have reconnected to publish this book and to play together in two local bands, still striving to be better with age.
