Great Books Discussions -- Lone Tree Library
The Lone Tree Great Books Group meets on the first Thursday night each month from 7 PM to approximately 8:30 PM at the Lone Tree Library.
We will follow the general open-ended "Shared Inquiry" discussion guidelines of the Great Books Foundation (GBF). And, as the GBF guidelines suggest, participants are expected to meet with the group regularly and to have read the material thoroughly in order to participate in the discussions. Of course, emergencies happen, and life occasionally gets in the way; so if you will be unable to attend, please notify one of the facilitators by phone or email.
The following is our tentative schedule for the coming months. Always subject to change, changes will be announced and posted well in advance of the discussion sessions. Please be sure your facilitators have your up-to-date email address and phone numbers.
Facilitator: David Williams (303)708-8854, firstname.lastname@example.org
