"Twenty-some members and guests joined our reinstated book club on June 6, 2018 to Skype with author, Brooke Stoddard, about his book World in the Balance: The Perilous Months of June-October 1940. Bookmarks were passed out and the group decided the next book discussion will feature TM Devine's book, To the Ends of the Earth: Scotland's Global Diaspora 1750-2010
We invite you to enjoy some excerpts from "Shakespearience" which is an original program directed by Nicole Tremblay, Theatre Director at Park Tudor School. A few of Park Tudor's Thespians will perform—Cabaret Style—monologues from a variety of Shakespeare's plays.
Ms. Tremblay is beginning her second year here in Indianapolis. Before joining the faculty at Park Tudor School, she was Head of Drama/Lead Teacher and Teacher Training Mentor/Graduate Teacher Mentor at Wymondham High Academy Trust in Wymondham, England. Prior to that, Nicole served for eight years as Arts Area Coordinator/Head of Drama at Saffron Walden County High School, also in England. She has extensive experience in curriculum development and coordination, academic mentoring, and organizing whole-school events and productions. Nicole earned an M.A. in Performing Arts Education from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, and a B.A. in English and Drama & Dance from the University of New Hampshire.
Dr. Charles Venable, CEO and Director of the Indianapolis Museum of Art, very generously opened his home and garden to ESU members for our June 2 Garden Party in celebration of the Queen's Birthday.
The ESU celebrates English as a shared language to foster global understanding and good will by providing educational and cultural opportunities for students, educators, and members.
