Along with PBS, Flossie returns to Lowell High School to reunite with former pupils, teach a class about whether Bob Dylan deserved a Nobel Laureate, and reflect on her life.

“Accepting the fact that the body is going to go, but the personality doesn’t have to go. And that thing which is the hardest to admit is that character doesn’t have to go.”
