Great Books Discussion   

Great Books discussion groups are lively, friendly, sometimes contentious - and a good deal of fun. Participants challenge their own and others’ beliefs and opinions in the light of a rich, thought-provoking text.   The group is currently reading from Great Conversations #6 and Great Books: The Soul of the Text. To learn more contact the group facilitator, Louis Wu, at
