Our blog designed to honor literary inspiration, to encourage passionate, young writers-to-be, and to embrace the immersive creative experience that is known as Great Books Summer Program.
In its 17th year, Great Books is a place to celebrate inspired learning and examine timeless literature in a warm, supportive community of avid readers. We embrace the never-ending quest for knowledge while exploring the art of civil discourse. Our seminar-style lectures give students the first taste of college by learning through asking questions as they discuss complex matters with civility, respect, and support for contrary perspectives.
Our Blog embraces discussion-based learning, the importance of discovery and the need for conscientious debate to advance deep conversations. We’ll examine the timeless questions of: What is the good life? What do I owe my neighbors? What must I do in the face of injustice? And we will hear from current and past students who attended Great Books.
Please bookmark this page to hear what our students, program assistants, faculty and perhaps even some of our distinguished guests are saying! If you are interested in being a guest writer please email info@greatbookssummer with your idea or a ready-to-go article for review.
