Great Books


Alternate Mondays • Fall, spring and summer • 10 a.m.-noon • Room 21

May (27 no class) • June 10, 24 • July 8, 22

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 “Jane Eyre” (Penguin editions preferred). After that, students will complete reading selections from our “Great Conversations 3” anthology. Ultimately, we will begin selections from “Taking Action,” edited by Adam Davis. Discussion questions from The Great Books Foundation will be available for all selections. Selections will be described in the weekly OLLI newsletters. Please read the selection before each class. Come and try a class—you may be pleasantly surprised!
