Great Books Summer Program

Call me a geek but this sounds like a lot of fun (as does the track on film).

Great Books offers membership in an international community of enthusiastic young learners and distinguished college faculty who read and discuss Great Books and Big Ideas. You will discuss the likes of Plato, Jefferson, Tolstoy, Borges and Vonnegut with other young people from around the globe who love literature just as much as you do!

The premise?  A middle-aged academic named Ilan Stavans at Amherst looks for a way to realize his dream teaching the “humanities whole–capable of expanding instead of narrowing the concept of who we are.”
