Poetry, short stories, plays, novels, history, philosophy, science, not necessarily in that order, classics that are worthy of discussion, current and past, western and non-western, these are the works we discuss. The discussion is what is most important. We discuss these works to enlarge our understanding of the ideas that shape our culture and gain a deeper appreciation for what it means to be human.

Effective immediately this Meetup will be serving our Great Books Discussion Groups in Sonoma County.  All those who wish to follow our discussion groups in San Francisco should join the Great Books Discussion Groups of San Francisco Meetup site (address link below).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
