These festive gatherings are a perfect introduction to the Great Books.
City of Your Final Destination: A Shared Inquiry and a Movie Event
March 7 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 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 the 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.
Read Peter Cameron’s novel beforehand, then we will view the film adaptation and together tackle his ideas on these themes: cross-cultural identity, happiness, connections with others, and the capriciousness of love.
Bring questions of your own as well!
