Leader/Reader Workshop

Summer 2023

Join our annual Great Books workshop to meet with enthusiastic readers from around northern California, brush up on your leading style, discover new ideas, and practice discussion leading in a supportive setting. Bring friends from your discussion group.

Lead by Example

The Leader-Reader Workshop helps develop confidence in Great Books discussions. We'll spend the day demonstrating, discussing and practicing techniques for effectively leading and participating in discussions. We'll trade tips on having good discussions and what gets in their way, and we'll practice our technique in mini-discussions, reviewing what worked.


Experience the power of the shared inquiry method! This workshop is offered annually by the Great Books Council of San Francisco, and is for all levels of leaders and readers. There is a small charge to cover expenses, a break-even fee. 

The annual workshop, on Zoom, will next take place during the summer of 2023.


Please email Louise Morgan at louise-morgan@sbcglobal.net if you would like to be included on a wait list.
