Great Books, Great Conversations

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

Free

Members only–free. To RSVP, please scroll down. The day before the discussion, registered attendees will receive a confirmation email with a link to join via Zoom.

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.

This month the group starts a new book, Even Deadlier, a sequel to the Seven Deadly Sins Anthology published by the Great Books Foundation. Even Deadlier includes 14 more short story masterpieces selected for discussion and reflection (click here to order the book).

This discussion group is now in it’s tenth 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. And, the seven deadly sins!
