Great Books Forum Series at Westchester Community College: February, March, April 2018



The Great Books Forum offers an opportunity to encounter extraordinary works of classic and modern literature in the company of other interested readers from the college and the community. Led by members of the college’s English Department faculty, discussions are wide-ranging and spirited. Along with the works themselves, dialogues focus on issues of context and interpretation. The events will take place in the Gateway Center, Room 131, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The theme for spring 2018 is Children’s Literature: Fantasy and Realism:
