Southwest Great Books Weekend

February 16, 2018 - February 18, 2018

Creating a Great Books Council of the Southwest

Tempe, Arizona, February 16–18, 2018
Sponsored by Harrison Middleton University, Great Hearts Academies, the Great Books Foundation, and the Alliance for Liberal Learning

The Southwest Great Books Weekend is an opportunity to meet friends and neighbors who enjoy the exploration of great writing and great ideas.

The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix provides the setting for Big Ideas in Popular Culture: Music, Film, and Television, a day of readings and discussions focused on the questions, challenges, and influence of popular art.

We invite you to spend the weekend learning about the impact of popular culture and the power of Shared Inquiry discussion. We’ll also take first steps toward building a Great Books Council of the Southwest, a community association dedicated to reading, listening, discussion, and lifelong learning.
