There seems to be an endless supply of books to stack up on the night stand or cram into a bookshelf, but how do you pick which ones to read?
The Los Alamos Great Books Discussion makes the decision process easy by selecting the books for the reader.
The book group not only selects the material for its members, it also invites them to participate in literary conversations.
The discussions will begin at 1 p.m. Sept. 9 at Mesa Public Library.
To get involved, all that is needed is the book, “Great Conversations 3,” which can be purchased for $24.95, plus shipping, from the Great Books Foundation, 35 East Wacker Drive, Suite 2300, Chicago, Ill., 60601-2205.
“Great Conversations” include excerpts from numerous authors such as Chaucer, Mary Shelley and Tolstoy.
Besides reading 15 literary selections, the group will also read two novels, Machiavelli’s “The Prince” and Charlotte Bronte’s “Jane Eyre.”
“It’s just a variety of reading selections,” said Mary Cernicek, the group moderator.
She explained the meetings begin with a question and then followed by dialogue in response to the question.
Elizabeth Aeillo, the orginial moderator for the group, said it has operated in Los Alamos 20-25 years.
