CLEMSON — The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Clemson University will hold two Free Friday Lectures during September, with subjects including mountain culture to Medicare planning.

Open to the public as well as OLLI members, the lectures will take place at 10 a.m. at the Charles K. Cheezem Education Center at Patrick Square, located at 100 Thomas Green Boulevard in Clemson.

The Sept. 12 lecture will focus on stories from the Upstate’s “Dark Corner Culture,” as told by author and northwestern Greenville County native Dean Campbell. His book “Twice-told Tales of the Dark Corner” is a compilation of articles he wrote originally for the Tryon Daily Bulletin that relate the rich history, culture and beauty in this Upstate mountain region, from moonshine-making to haunted houses.

On Sept. 26, Medicare planning specialist Monica Wheeler will lead a discussion on understanding Medicare and supplemental planning options. This lecture will cover information about Medicare, Medicare supplements and Medicare Advantage plans.

For more information, contact OLLI at 864-633-5242 or olli@clemson.edu.
