The Academy of Lifelong Learning at Shell Point Retirement Community in Fort Myers invites the public to attend June classes that will feature informative discussions on a range of subjects.

Florida SouthWestern State College professor Adrian Kerr will trace the origins of the Vietnamese people and their heritage. On June 11 at 4:15 p.m., “The French War, American War, and Present-day Vietnam” will utilize a sequence of photographs to depict how the Vietnamese heritage has produced a vibrant, colorful and unique religion. Set for June 18 at 4:30 p.m., “Da Nang and the Ancient Capital Hue” will illustrate the still-evident divide between the North and South.

In addition, the “Writers’ Workshop: Successful Writing Projects” will take place on June 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. Led by author and historian Robert Macomber, the workshop will share tips on how to organize, start and complete a successful writing project. It will teach guests how to keep a project on schedule, offer ways to edit without angst and provide ideas to inspire memorable writing. Attendees are encouraged to bring a large notepad and a pen or pencil with which to write.

Tickets for the classes with Kerr are $10; the writing workshop is $35.
