Lecture series for adults age 55 and older kicks off in March

Senior Adults Gaining Enrichment (SAGE), an outreach program of Penn State Lehigh Valley for adults age 55 and older, will kick off its spring lecture series on Friday, March 4.

Each SAGE session is held on a Friday and begins with coffee at 10:30 a.m., the featured speaker at 11 a.m., and is followed by lunch at noon. All SAGE lectures are held in room 135 at Penn State Lehigh Valley located at 2809 Saucon Valley Road in Center Valley, Pennsylvania.

Katina Sossiadis Bozikis, instructor in film at Penn State Lehigh Valley, will open the SAGE 55 and older Spring Series, Turning Points: People, Ideas, Events. Her lecture is titled "History and Evolution of Film."

Throughout the decades, beginning with Thomas Edison and his contemporaries, film has evolved through the technological and artistic achievements of numerous individuals, playing off one another.

Bozikis will address the impact of painting, theater and music on the visual formation of film as well as the evolution of motion picture companies and their impact on society, both past and present.

The cost per lecture is $20. Lunch is included. To register, contact Diane McAloon at 610-285-5066 or dmcaloon@psu.edu.

The mission of SAGE is to encourage intellectual and cultural enrichment for seniors, 55 and older, by providing a stimulating college-level lecture, workshop and seminar environment through a self-funded, self-directed and member-driven program.
