About Our Host


Susan Supak was previously the host of the Library Out Loud interview series at Albert Wisner Public Library in Warwick, NY. Since retiring from a successful career in public relations and relocating to Texas with her husband, she has become an enthusiastic supporter of OLLI at UNT. When we asked why she chose to become a member, Susan told us: "The numerous scientific studies that highlight the connection between lifelong learning and community involvement with maintaining cognitive and mental health make OLLI at UNT the most fun and exciting 'preventive medicine' we could ever want. It's a dose of interesting classes, bright people, and fun activities!"
