Great Books Foundation Discussions and Shared Inquiry
Great Books discussion groups are forums for adults to discuss significant writings. We come from a variety of backgrounds to discuss important ideas and issues that have shaped civilization. Our discussions are lively, probing and enlightening. We challenge our own and others' opinions in light of the text we are all reading. The object is not one "right answer" but rather to examine questions raised in the readings, with reasoning informed by our diverse experiences.
Bring your poem, essay, short story, or a few pages from your manuscript, along with copies for each member. After a reading, the Russell Writers will gently critique your piece. In turn, you will have the opportunity to assist others with your input. Please try to keep your pieces to three double-spaced pages so that there is time to review the work of all participants.
