Great Books, Great Conversations

Wednesday, April 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Members only–free. To RSVP, please scroll down. The day before the discussion, a confirmation email with Zoom details will be sent to registered attendees. Please note: for this ongoing group, the same members meet monthly for discussion via Zoom. The group will not be meeting in March.

This ongoing Village discussion group meets on the first Wednesday of each month to discuss a selection of short readings from an anthology published by The Great Books Foundation. Each anthology contains a complete play or short novel, short stories, essays, poems, and excerpts from longer works. When the group finishes discussing all the readings in one book, it selects another from the Great Books catalog. Most readings are thirty-plus pages in length.

The reading for April is “The Man Who Loved Islands” by DH Lawrence, included in Great Conversations 5 (click here to order).

This discussion group is now in it’s eleventh year, but new members are encouraged to join! The readings are short and stimulating, the conversations are lively, and the group is very welcoming to new participants.
