The Great Books method of Shared Inquiry discussion encourages a personal approach to literature. Participants engage in a search for the author's meaning. There are no right or wrong answers and no examinations. The sharing of individual interpretations results in a greater understanding for all.
New participants are welcome throughout the year. There is no fee and a Wheaton Public Library card is not required. Meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, September through June, at 7:30 p.m.
To register or for more information about the Great Books Discussion Group contact Beverly Jirsa at 630-868-7573 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
