57th Annual Pacific Northwest Great Books Weekend Event

June 24, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - June 26, 2016 @ 1:00 pm

All books for the 57th Annual Pacific Northwest Great Books Weekend Event are pre-read by the Board and chosen for the ability to sustain a rousing two hour discussion. Special effort is given to find pieces with: cultural diversity, different genres ie, plays, fiction, non-fiction, and pieces that have or will stand the test of time. Many of our titles have included classics and prize winning authors, but (in true Great Books fashion) we do not limit our selections based solely on book sales or as defined by others as classics. We are excited to present the four readings of our next June 24-26 event:
1. Disgraced: A Play by Ayad Akhtar ISBN 9780316324465
2. Death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy ISBN 9780307951335
3. Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder ISBN 9780060757502
4. Meaning of Human Existence by Edward O. Wilson ISBN 9781631491146
