Great Books Reading Groups
Join UNC-Chapel Hill faculty and guest discussion leaders for robust explorations of diverse, classic texts.
We will gather in intimate reading groups at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill on successive Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 10 am to 12 pm. We will also offer a limited number of virtual seats for those who prefer to participate from home. Every participant will receive a copy of the book before the first discussion. Space is limited, so sign up early to reserve your spot!
