Douglas County Libraries currently sponsors Great Books Discussion Groups at four libraries.
More than fifty years ago, the Great Books Movement started at the University of Chicago with the idea that ordinary people could meet and discuss the enduring ideas and issues found in classic writings. The Great Books Foundation promotes reading and conversation about great literature through discussion groups.
Drop in to the Booksharing Book Club for a lively discussion of current titles and authors – no reading list!
Booksharing meets the first Wednesday of each month at noon at Fika Coffee House, 19559 E. Mainstreet, Parker.
Meets the fourth Monday every other month at 6:30 p.m. Girls in grades 4-6 are invited to bring their moms or another adult female and discuss books.
