Residents in the area of Ottawa will have an opportunity to take part in the popular continuing education course about Thomas Jefferson the University of Kansas sponsors.

Offered as part of the Osher Lifelong Learning series, Explaining the Perplexing Thomas Jefferson will be on the schedule at Ottawa April 9, 16, and 23, 2013 — all Tuesdays, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The site will be the campus of the University of Ottawa.

Norm Ledgin is the “explainer” for these courses. This will be the fifth on this topic he has taught since early last year. Ledgin says he was “floored” by response to his latest presentation at Maple Woods Community College, Clay County, MO, where some evaluations indicated the six-hour course “should be longer.”

NOTE: Ledgin is the author of several books about Jefferson. His latest, Sally of Monticello: Founding Mother, is available from
