OLLI, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Berkshire Community College, is pleased to announce that author and commentator Cokie Roberts will the 2017 Mona Sherman Memorial Speaker this year.

Ms. Roberts will speak at 6pm, directly following OLLI's 2017 Annual Meeting, which begins at 4:30pm. Both events are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. We are grateful to Berkshire Gas for co-sponsoring the lecture.

Cokie Roberts is a political commentator for ABC News and NPR. In her more than 40 years in broadcasting, she has won countless awards, including three Emmys, and was cited by the American Women in Radio and Television as one of the fifty greatest women in the history of broadcasting. In addition to her reporting she has written six New York Times bestsellers, most dealing with the roles of women in U.S. history.

The Mona Sherman Memorial Lecture honors the late Mona Sherman, a former OLLI President who had a transformative effect on the OLLI program. Thanks to the generosity of her family and friends, the annual lecture is free to the Berkshire community that Mona loved.

The OLLI Annual Meeting features a review of the past year, election of new board members, and updates from Berkshire Community College President Ellen Kennedy.
