Two new CFCC courses take readers beyond the books

February 16th, 2015 by Sonya Johnson

Cape Fear Community College is offering two new classes that will allow readers to explore ‘beyond the books’ with local authors.

Walking Through History 

In *Walking Through History*, students will read works about historically significant locations in the Wilmington area and then visit each area with the books’ authors as their guides. An introductory class will be held on Thursday, March 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the BIG center on CFCC’s Wilmington Campus. A pre-registration fee of $19.00 is required, but participants may join the class at any time and visit the sites of their choice.

Meet the Author Book Club 

CFCC’s *Meet the Author Book Club* was designed to give participants a chance to read a selected book each month and then meet with the book’s author to discuss the writing and publication process. The class will be held in the McKeithan Center at the North Campus and also has a registration fee of $19.00. The course begins February 24 and will run through April 28.

Both courses have received funding from a grant from the Cape Fear Community College Foundation, which was provided by the generous donations of CFCC employees to the CFCC Campus Fund. For more information or to register, call (910) 362-7254.
