The Department of Humanistic Studies and the Brown County Library invite you to participate in the fall semester’s Great Books Discussion series.  On the second Tuesday of each month, a member of UW-Green Bay’s Humanitistc Studies faculty will lead a discussion on one of the “great books” of western and world culture.  The schedule for the fall semester 2008 is…

Sept 9, 2008
Thomas Aquinas, “On Natural Law” presented by Prof. Derek Jeffreys

Oct 14, 2008
Henry David Thoreau, “Civil Disobedience” presented by Prof. David Voelker

Nov 11, 2008
Alexander Solzhenitsyn, One Day on the Life of Ivan Denisovich, presented by Prof Kevin Kain

Dec 9, 2008
Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter, presented by Prof. Bryan Vescio

The discussions are free and open to the public.  Faculty, students, and community members are encouraged to attend.  Of course, we encourage you to read the “great book” before attending the discussion, but even if you cannot finish the work, you may find the session enlightening.

The Great Books Discussion series is held on the Lower Level of the Brown County Library (Central Branch – 515 Pine St., Downtown Green Bay).  Discussions begin at 6:30 p.m.

See you there!
