Interested in reading and discussing selections by authors chosen by the Great Books Foundation? Then this is the study group for you. These authors raise an array of stimulating topics for discussion, addressing many of the perennial questions with which people everywhere have grappled. These works familiarize readers with many of the ideas which have had a profound and formative influence on our world. We will be using Great Conversations, Volume 6, available in paperback from the Great Books Foundation ( or 312-332-5870). Authors include Francis Bacon, John Locke, George Eliot, Mark Twain, Thomas Mann, Katherine Mansfield, Mary McCarthy, and others. In addition, we will read The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. Please join us for lively and thought-provoking discussions in one of OLLI’s long standing study groups.
