Adult Learning Exchange
“NEW” READINGS & DISCUSSION GROUP
Wednesday, May 3, 11:00 am
Hamilton House members love to read, to be informed and to exchange views on what they’ve read, whether over a cup of coffee or in more structured settings such as a discussion group. Having readings and discussion groups has been a priority at Hamilton House for many years. We want to keep this tradition going and would like your help in exploring the best way to do that. How would you organize it? Who would you like to read? What kind of readings would you want included? Essays? Interviews? Reviews? Profiles? Articles? How do you think discussions should be led? What might the group be called?
We’d like to hear from you. Please come to a special “focus meeting” to be held on Wednesday, May 3, at 11:00 am.
