A Month in the Country, A Shared Inquiry and Movie Event

October 24, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


What could be more fun that discussing a great book? Discussing a great book and watching the movie! These informal gatherings draw members from various Great Books Club groups (and those new to the Great Book Foundation!)  We watch and discuss a classic movie and after pre-reading the book. It is a fun way to get your feet wet in the Great Books Shared Inquiry method of discussion, meet interesting and friendly people, or catch up with old friends.  This is an alternative, fun way for a shared inquiry discussion and is held three times a year. As usual, a selection is read beforehand. That day a movie adaptation is viewed followed by a leisurely lunch, and the discussion of both the book and movie. There are always fascinating contrasts.

Our next event will be Saturday, October 24, 2015 at Queen Anne Lutheran Church on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle. The book and movie will be “A Month in the Country” and we will be discussing how we recover from emotional trauma, what part do human contact, nature and beauty play in this recovery, honesty wholeness and happiness.

Simply fill  attached registration, and return to address on form by October 17th. Lunch is included and there is plenty of free parking.
