The relationship between the enduring qualities of great written works and the enlivening activity of discussing them is the cornerstone of this study group. This semester we will read the anthology Identity & Self Respect, (Great Books Foundation) which includes readings from James Baldwin, Plato, Alice Munro, Virginia Woolf, Anton Chekhov, & T.S. Eliot. In addition, we will read Emma by Jane Austen (Penguin Classics, 2015) and Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison (Second Vintage International, 1995). The anthology is available through The Great Books Foundation (312-332-5870) or www.greatbooks.org/store. Please join us for lively and thought-provoking discussions in one of OLLI’s long standing study groups.
