Instructor Ann Evangelisto recently reached a major milestone by teaching her 25th course at OLLI at Duke. To commemorate this accomplishment, Ann was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation by OLLI Director, Garry Crites. Ann now joins a very elite group – fewer than 5% of all OLLI instructors have taught this many times!
Since first teaching “Desperate Women in Fiction” for OLLI (then DILR) in 1998, Ann has taught a variety of literature courses. Over the years, her courses have included “Modern Italian Short Stories,” “Conflicting Loyalties” and “The Essence of William Trevor” and many others. Her 2018 Winter Term course is titled “Voices in Fiction” and deals with the works of three writers – Stefan Zweig, J. L. Carr and Alice McDermott.
