Great Books Discussion Group
Dates and Titles for Fall 2013
Great Books reading and discussion programs introduce adult participants to substantial works of literature, philosophy, economics, political science, and psychology. Using a method of discussion called shared inquiry, group members enjoy intellectual collaboration and the opportunity to reflect on their own lives and convictions in light of ideas from major thinkers.
The Skokie Public Library’s Great Books Discussion Group has been meeting for many years. Originally begun by Allen Schwartz, the group now bears his name and actively welcomes new members.
Meetings are held from 7:00 to 9:00pm on the second Tuesdays of March through June and September through December. The Group meets in the Library's Book Discussion Room. We are reading from Great Conversations II.
