San Francisco Mini-Retreat

February 11, 2023

The Northern California council hosts an annual one-day mini-retreat in San Francisco.



Flowers in Your Hair Optional

Each year, usually in February, Northern California Great Books hosts a one-day mini-retreat in San Francisco to discuss a book (or books), sometimes accompanied by a viewing of a film adaption.

Our next San Francisco Mini-Retreat will be Saturday, February 11, 2023, via Zoom.  In the morning we will discuss award-winning (Nobel 2003) author J.M. Coetzee's Age of Iron.  In the afternoon we'll turn to two poems that we will discuss and compare/contrast with the novel: Country of Grief and Grace by Antije Krog (one of South Africa's greatest living poets) and His Day is Done by Maya Angelou.
