Great Books Reading Groups
Join UNC faculty discussion leaders for a robust discussion of classic texts, ancient to modern. Reading groups will meet on successive Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Flyleaf Books, and each participant will receive a copy of the book before the first session. Due to the nature of the reading groups, refunds cannot be offered. Seats are limited to 20 participants, so sign up early to reserve your seat!
To enroll in one or more of the Great Books Reading Groups visit our registration page and click the “register” button for “Great Books Reading Groups–Tuesday Mornings at Flyleaf.” From there, you can select the book group(s) of your choice. You can also register over the phone by calling us at 919-962-1544. We will send you a copy of the book and details regarding the event approximately three to four weeks before the first meeting (or as soon as you register if less than three weeks before).
