This course explores literature recommended by the Great Books Foundation. The group is made up of individuals who love to read and partake in lively discussions. Discussion leadership rotates among class participants. Join the discussion in finding deeper meaning behind the printed words. The opening selection will be the complete book, “Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave,” by Frederick Douglass, (Penguin Classics 1982 edition preferred. Look for ISBN: 014039012x or “Edited with an Introduction by Houston A. Baker, Jr.” This edition is 159 pages.) Discussion questions are included in the back of our current anthology book, “Great Conversations 1.” After that, students will resume reading selections from “Great Conversations 1.” The anthology may be purchased through The Great Books Foundation at 800-222-5870, or online at www.greatbooks.org .
