The Clio Club has announced its programs for the 115th year of bringing cultural activities to Williamsport.
Since its inception, the club has sought to uplift the minds of its members with programs designed to challenge one's intellect.
At 1 p.m. Wednesday, members will hear Jonathan Williamson speak. He is an assistant professor at Lycoming College and a member of City Council. Williamson will address the club about "The Politics Behind the News" at the Yoke Fellowship building, 1200 Almond St.
Williamson is chair and assistant professor of political science at Lycoming, where he focuses on American politics and government. He also serves as the director of Lycoming College's Center for the Study of Community and the Economy.
Williamson received a bachelor's degree in political science and psychology from University of Houston, and a master's degree and doctorate, both in political science, from Emory University, Atlanta, Ga. Williamson also writes a column for Webb Weekly.
Later this year, the club will be addressed by Victoria Browning Wyeth, granddaughter of iconic artist Andrew Wyeth. Diane Langley will speak in November about "The Powerful Ripple Effects of Your Life's Story."
Early in March, Gary Park, executive director of the Thomas T. Taber Museum, will speak about the "Taber Treasures and Teasers," followed by Fiona Powell in April when she addresses the club in a speech titled "A British Girlhood, or Derek the Lionhart and Other Heroes of Britain." The final program of the year in May will feature the Allegria ensemble.
Non-members who would like to attend any program are asked to call Barbara Weaver at 398-2785.
