Join us for stimulating discussions of selections from great world literature. Each discussion will be guided by a trained leader who may ask questions, but not answer them. Using the "shared inquiry‟ method, readers explore their understanding of a thought-provoking work of literature or philosophy in a well-conducted discussion, allowing participants to reach a level of insight not often achieved when reading alone. The reading selections are from the Great Books Foundation's anthology Great Conversations 3, available through GBF at 1-800-222-5870, or http://www.greatbooks.org. Copies may be available through your local library. Schedule as follows: March 1, "Death in the Woods," Sherwood Anderson; March 15, "Garden of Forking Paths," Jorge luis Borges; March 29, Introduction to "The Second Sex," Simone deBeauvoir; April 12, "An Interest in Life," Grace Paley; April 26, "Six Characters in Search of an Author," Luigi Pirandello. Free, but registration is required.
