59th Annual  Northwest Great Books Weekend Event

June 22, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - June 24, 2018 @ 1:30 pm

Please join us for the 59th Annual  Northwest Great Books Weekend Event! All books 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. Whether you’re a seasoned Great Books member or you are just thinking of joining-everyone is welcome. 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 22-24 event:

  1. As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner 9780679732259
  2. Passing by Nella Larsen 9780142437278
  3. Being Mortal by Atul Gawande 9781250076229
  4. Caleb’s Crossing by Geraldine Brooks 9780143121077

ISBN are provided for those that choose to purchase books separately. Please purchase the specified books above, makes it much easier to refer to page numbers!
