About the Host
Susan Supak was previously the host of the Library Out Loud interview series at Albert Wisner Public Library in Warwick, NY. Since relocating to Texas with her husband, she has become an enthusiastic member and supporter of OLLI at UNT. When we asked what made her choose our program, she 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!"
