Come with us and bring literature to life!

Would you like to live in a castle set in the English countryside – where we will have class in the Gold Room, enjoy High Tea in the Conservatory, and have a formal banquet in the Great Hall? We will also travel to Stratford-upon-Avon and London in England; then onto Europe, where we will study Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in Verona, Italy; F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night on the French Riviera; and Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises in Pamplona, Spain.

We will do many exciting things on this study tour, as we journey through FOUR COUNTRIES!
