Book-to-Film Discussion Group
Some of the most enduring films have been inspired by great literature. And some books seemed to be nothing special until brought into sharper focus by a great filmmaker. The Eldredge Public Library would like to invite you to join our a book-to-film discussion group.
On the second Saturday of each month we meet at the Library at 2:00 pm, having read the pre-selected book for the month. We watch the movie version together, and then comes the fun as we discuss the merits of each. Facilitated by a Library staff member, the group chooses the titles. We are have an interesting exchange of ideas, thoughts, and impressions. Most of all, we enjoy an evening of fun in a relaxed setting with congenial people!

Â Chatham Great Books Discussion Group
This discussion group is for people who want to talk about outstanding writings in history, literature, philosophy, politics, science, theology, and other disciplines. Great Books discussion groups use an approach to discussion called Shared Inquiry, which follows a few simple guidelines designed to make a discussion more rewarding by keeping the groupâ€™s attention focused firmly on the text and its interpretation.
The groupÂ meets theÂ 3rd Tuesday of the Month from 3:00-5:00 pm throughout the year. For more information please contact facilitator Rick Pike at 508-221-3240 or firstname.lastname@example.org
