The Great Books Discussion Group will meet on Thursday, December 6, in Room 16 of the preschool and discuss Jean-Paul Sartre’s (1905-1980) Why Write? Sartre, best known as the leading exponent of existentialism, also addressed questions relating to literary interpretation. Our selection will introduce themes of the writer’s audience as well as prose versus poetry. Subsequent meetings will be held monthly with selections from the Great Books Foundation series. Contact Patrick Carey at 770-241-2511 for further information.

Ministry Description:
The goal of this lively discussion group is to engage the intellect and imagination through shared inquiry about provocative literature. The Great Books Foundation in Chicago compiles the selections. Challenge and broaden your thinking as the group probes deeply into characters and ideas. Members are required to read the selections prior to the meetings and come prepared to answer interpretive questions. The Great Books Discussion Group meets from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month between September and May.
