  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Join us for a journey through the novel All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. This award-winning book is set in occupied France during WWII and focuses on a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths eventually cross. We’ll look deeply into the story and the author’s writing techniques, including voice, characterization, and plot. This is an excellent course for ardent readers and writers who want to improve their skills. You’ll never read a book the same way again after this class! Just remember: Books get heavier when you quantify their interiors.

Reading: Doerr, Anthony, All the Light We Cannot See, ISBN: 978-1-5011-7321-9
