The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mahsin Hamid: Shared Inquiry and a Movie

May 14, 2016 @ 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.

How much does our initial culture determine our values? Join us in discussing this concept in what will be a thoughtful and sometimes passionate, but unlike the recent political debates, always polite, exchange of ideas.
