All Passion Spent: A Shared Inquiry and Movie Event

November 4, 2017 @ 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 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.

We will be discussing the following:

How do we approach the end of life?

How do we determine the purpose of our lives?

What do we leave as a legacy?

Bring questions of your own as well!

For further explanation or questions, call Steven Burdick at 253-850-3514
