What we're about

We are a book discussion group dedicated to reading the great works of Western civilization. We'll start with the ideas of ancient Greece, and
follow them through their evolution in Rome, the middle ages, the enlightenment, right up to our own time.
We will read the best. Men like Plato, Aristotle, Locke, Kant, etc.

Each month we will read and discuss a book (or part of a book) from the Western Canon.

The name and inspiration of the group is Britannica's Great Books of the Western World, edited by Mortimer Adler and Robert Hutchins of the University of Chicago.

Adler and Hutchins believed that the Great Books could be read by any adult who wanted to be a better educated and more informed citizen. They believed the Great Books could be viewed as a Great Conversation, taking place over the centuries and millenia.

If you're ready to join the Great Conversation, come and join us!
