Most of us have at least one email address, but our email accounts have a lot of useful features that you might not know about! In this class, we’ll go over the basics of email (sending, receiving, adding attachments, etc.), highlight features that help you stay organized, and talk a bit about common email scams and how to spot them. Rather than going in-depth into any one email platform, this class will focus on the basic features found across most email platforms (Gmail, Outlook, Comcast, Yahoo Mail, AOL Mail, etc.) with a few examples from each.Space in this class is limited, and registration is required. To join us, please register online.

In January 1943, FDR and Churchill secretly met in Morocco to plan the defeat of Germany, Italy, and Japan. The Devils Will Get No Rest recounts the Casablanca Conference and its colorful participants’ fraught debates as they planned to pivot from a defensive to an offensive war. For ten grueling days, Roosevelt, Churchill, de Gaulle, George C. Marshall, Eisenhower, and Patton, questioned each other’s competence, doubted each other’s vision, and argued their way through choices that could win or lose the war. In the end, Churchill called the Casablanca Conference the most important Allied conclave of the war. This is a master class in military strategy, foreign policy, and high stakes negotiation. Conroy uses fresh research and neglected reminiscences to tell the behind-the-scenes story of how the Allies stared into the face of evil and forged a winning plan.
