WALLI registration, refreshments set for Friday, January 11, 3 p.m.

The Washington Area Lifelong Learning Institute (WALLI) will begin its winter and spring calendar with registration and refreshments at the Episcopal Parish House on Friday, January 11, at 3 p.m.

At this time members and prospective members can view the upcoming calendar and make their choices for numerous activities.

The following Monday, January 14, Flynn Warren will speak on the topic, “Agatha Christie: Her Use of Drugs for Murders” at the Parish House at 2 p.m.

Agatha Christie served as a pharmacy assistant in military hospitals and learned a great deal about drugs. How she then used those drugs in her writings to cause murder and other mayhem is the theme. The plot of A Caribbean Mystery, the novel with the most drugs, is used to demonstrate how drugs were often interwoven into plot lines.

Flynn Warren is a native of North Carolina and a frequent presenter to WALLI. He attended Belmont Abbey College, received a BS in Pharmacy from the University of South Carolina and an MS in Hospital Pharmacy from the University of Georgia. He joined the UGA Pharmacy faculty in l967. In 1977 he worked at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Saudi Arabia where he was Head of Pharmacy Services. He rejoined the UGA Pharmacy faculty in l985 from which he retired in 2007.
