Instructor: Bob Batchelor
Location: Victory Parkway Campus

Award-winning cultural historian Bob Batchelor offers an in-depth and complete look at this iconic visionary. Born in the Roaring Twenties, growing up in the Great Depression, living and thriving through the American Century, and dying in the twenty-first century, Stan Lee’s life is a unique representation of recent American history. Batchelor examines Lee’s fascinating life by drawing out all its complexity, drama, heartache, and humor, revealing how Lee introduced the world to heroes that were just as fallible and complex as their creator—and just like all of us.

An up-close look at a legendary figure, this session provides the full measure of a man whose genius continues to mesmerize audiences worldwide. Lee dreamed of one day writing the Great American Novel, but ended up doing so much more —revolutionizing culture by creating new worlds and heroes that have entertained generations.
