Great Books Book Group

The Great Books group selects a collection of literature to discuss each year. Please join us!

This autumn you might consider joining in reading and discussing Great Conversations. That’s the title of the Great Books collection Great Conversations I, an anthology of 15 selections of literature from the ancient world to the 20th century. The initial meeting date is Sunday afternoon September 9th, 2012 at 2:00 PM at the Portage District Library in a reserved meeting room. The agenda will be set and agreed upon at that meeting, but the group meets every two weeks on Sunday afternoons. The anthology includes The Epic of Gilgamesh, a play by Aeschylus, selections from de Montaigne, Pascal, Emerson, Whitman, de Tocqueville, Ibsen, Freud, Jung, Joseph Conrad, Thorstein Veblen, Tillie Olsen, Alice Munro and Henri Poincare. Participants are asked to purchase the single volume anthology from Great Books Foundation for $24.95 (or, if able, to buy the same volume from some other source). The group will read and discuss selections as agreed upon, probably every other Sunday afternoon.
