Summertime means inflight movies and splashy beach reads, and there is nothing wrong with that! Indulge, but when your brain gets restless take a deep dive into a new subject with a lecture series from The Great Courses, available free from the Los Angeles Public Library. The Great Courses commissions college professors to translate their classes into a lecture series geared towards the lifelong learner. Topics in the series range from history, art, religion, politics, economics, and more. The Library offers these courses in a variety of formats for your convenience.
