"Krakatau," by Jim Shepard and "Weekend," by Fay Weldon, (found in Even Deadlier, published by the Great Books Foundation) is the literature that will be discussed at this meeting. Great Books discussion groups are forums for thoughtful adults to read and discuss significant works of fiction, philosophy, political science, poetry, and drama. Great Books discussions are non-didactic, open-ended gatherings where people of all backgrounds come to talk about substantial literature and the great ideas and issues that literature addresses.Library: Millhopper Branch Library Millhopper Branch Library
Discussions are lively, engaging, friendly, sometimes contentious, probing, enlightening—and a good deal of fun. Participants challenge their own and others' beliefs and opinions in the light of a rich, thought-provoking text.
The object of a Great Books discussion is not to go home with the "right answer." The object is to examine the many questions raised by a text and to test some of the many possible answers by looking back to the text, using sound reasoning informed by our own experience.
