Great Books - Wednesday Evening
13 meetings at 3-week intervals, 7:30–9:00 p.m.
This group discusses the books you've always wanted to read, with an informative discussion that encourages independent thought. Selections include the oldest works by Homer to early 20th century writers such as Henry James and Sigmund Freud. Fiction, Non-Fiction, American and World titles are included. These writings provide a way of understanding our society and ourselves.
This group's members supply their own books. Because of the differences in various editions or translations, it is important to read the editions listed on the supplied reading list. Register and pick up your reading list information at any time at the Info Desk in the Library. 25 participant limit. Patrons may join for all books, or for separate titles.
