What we're about

This group reads lengthy books (350+ pages) that might otherwise not be feasible for monthly groups. Consequently, we will only meet once per quarter and the meetings will be approximately three hours in length. We're affiliated with Houston Great Books and follow "Shared Inquiry" discussion guidelines.
