Great Books Reading Groups
Join our community of readers!
Gather in small groups for robust explorations of diverse, classic texts with UNC faculty and guest discussion leaders. Reading groups meet in person at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. We also offer a limited number of virtual seats for those who prefer to participate from home. Each participant will receive a copy of the book before the first discussion. Space is limited, so sign up early to reserve your spot!
