Seminars@Hadley are the best! The technology seminars are especially relevant; the information I acquired helped me learn about my iPhone.

Seminars@Hadley presents

Discover the Treasures of Russia

Date: Thursday, October 8
Time: 10:00 AM CDT 15:00 GMT

The Kremlin in Moscow, Russia

Join Seminars@Hadley as we travel (virtually) to the largest country in the world – Russia! Hear stories about this amazing country that covers eleven time zones and hear about the lives of blind people that live there.

Hadley’s own Andre Lukatsky, director of Computer Services, was born in Russia, and will share stories about his childhood and about keeping his culture alive now that he is in Chicago.

Listen to Nafisa Keels, a Hadley instructor who has visited the schools for the blind in Russia, describe the wonderful educational services available to visually impaired students. Then, learn about the cultural riches, fascinating history and varied geography of Russia with Julie Kay, Hadley’s history teacher.

Dawn Turco, Hadley’s senior vice president, will moderate this 60-minute seminar. A question and answer session will be included as part of the hour.
