This ongoing Village discussion group makes its return! On the first Wednesday of each month, members gather to discuss a selection 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. Typical discussions have covered Plato’s The Apology, Rothschild’s Fiddle by Anton Chekhov, and Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad.

This month’s selection is “The Body of the Condemned” by Michel Foucault, and the moderator will be Village member Dick Brewer, PhD.
