OMM'S OWN SUMMER SCHOOL RETURNS! Four exciting courses in July and August plus Readers Theatre, all taught by our very own OMM Members!

READERS THEATRE
Every Friday, July 6 - August 10, at 3:00 p.m. in Crestwood Theatre

Directors: Warren Danskin, BA in Drama, MA in speech, and producer of shows at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, and professional actress Lynette Bennett Danskin No reservations necessary for the July 6 & 13 meetings. After that, rehearsals will be only for the cast of the August 21 show.

Join the fun! In Readers Theatre, the actors help the audience understand the text by their vocal expression without using sets, props or costumes. No memorization is required and no experience is necessary. Performance will occur at the OMM Own's Summer School graduation assembly the afternoon of August 21. Roles will be cast based on attendance at the first 2 meetings, July 6 and 13. CONTINUED ON PAGE 7...

THE NOW AND THE FUTURE OF MANNED SPACEFLIGHT
Mondays, July 9, 16,23, 2:00-3:00 p.m. in Crestwood Theatre
RSVP by July 5.

Instructor: Kenneth C Weston, Emeritus Professor of The University of Tulsa, former NASA engineer, and 50-year member of the American Rocket Society and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Since the Apollo program of the 1960s and 1970s, manned spaceflight has been limited to near-earth operations of space stations, like Mir and the International Space Station (ISS.) and their transport vehicles, like the Space Shuttle and Soyuz, all government sponsored programs. The 21st century has brought an interest in manned missions to asteroids, cis-lunar space, the moon, and Mars. Moreover, other governments such as China and private organizations such as Space-X have joined the United States, the European Space Agency (ESA), and Russia in these pursuits.

Shortly before his death, Stephen Hawking made the bold prediction that non-earth colonies must be established within a hundred years to assure the survival of mankind. In this course we consider this and will discuss and illustrate the varieties of approaches and directions that earth countries and organizations are taking and will likely pursue in the next decades to advance and insure the progress of humanity into the solar system.

EUDORA WELTY: AMERICAN WRITER AND PHOTOGRAPHER
Wednesdays, July 11, 18, 25, 1:00-2:00 p.m. in Crestwood Theatre
RSVP by July 9.

Instructor: Ruth Weston, Ph.D., former professor at Tulsa Community College; the United States Military Academy at West Point; The University of Tulsa; and Oral Roberts University; author of Gothic Traditions and Narrative Techniques in the Fiction of Eudora Welty (1994); past President of the Eudora Welty Society

When Pulitzer-Prize winner Eudora Welty published her autobiography in 1984, it became Harvard University Press's only best-seller. When she received Tulsa's Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award in 1991, The Tulsa World called her "a national treasure." When she died in 2001, the New York Times called her "a Lyrical Master of the Short Story." This internationally acclaimed author from Mississippi wrote fiction, non-fiction, and literary theory. She is also known for her photographs, many taken while she worked for the WPA during the Great Depression.

The topics for the course are:

1. Non-Fiction: Welty's autobiography One Writer's Beginnings. Eudora Welty was born in 1909 in Jackson, Mississippi. She tells us how her family and her surroundings contributed to the shaping not only of her personality but of her writing, recreating this vanished world with the same subtlety and insight that mark her fiction.

2. Fiction: "A Worn Path". Listen to Eudora Welty herself reading this short story, followed by interpretation and discussion of literary techniques 3. Photography: Images of the Great Depression in the Photography and Fiction of Eudora Welty
