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. Our opening selection will be the complete book “The Street of Crocodiles” by Bruno Schulz (any Penguin Edition should be fine—at 140 pages and the same translator). and Amazon have ample used books; some library copies are available. After that, participants will continue reading selections from our wonderful anthology, “Double Features: Big Ideas in Film.” A free PDF of discussion questions is provided for all selections. The anthology may be purchased through The Great Books Foundation at 800-222-5870 or at; or as a Kindle version through Amazon.

Instructor: Judy Alter     Tech Coordinators: Gary Wolfe and JoBeth Cooper
