What we're about

Formerly "Roseville, MN, Great Books Discussion Group"; still meeting in the Roseville, MN Library.

We are a diverse group of readers who meet monthly to share our observations, insights and sometimes personal lessons, that we find in the Great Books that still change the world.

We use the Great Books Foundation's assorted anthologies and collections to allow us to make easy and quick reference to whichever text we're discussing.

Great Books offer insights into human experience and common challenges to living a good life well, and offer happiness and hope for today and into the future.

It's always a good time to read the greatest books, stories and essays, of all times; and better times are enjoyed when discussing Great Books with happy, hopeful fellow readers. Join us soon.

Our text for 2018-2019 is _The Great Books Foundation Science Fiction Omnibus_ an anthology of short stories that "showcases some of its greatest masters, with stories that will spark timely discussion of imagined—but always plausible—worlds".
