If you like great ideas, great writing, and stimulating discussion, come and participate in a Great Books Discussion Group. We meet 4th Wednesday of each month from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

The Seven Deadly Sins Sampler is a collection of short stories which allows readers to peer into the hidden recesses of sinful thought and behavior. Without moralizing, the authors in this book-William Faulkner, Raymond Carver, Flannery O'Connor, and Margaret Atwood, to name a few-use fiction to explore our all too human thirst for transgressive pleasure.

For readers who know that good and evil isn't simply a matter of black and white, this collection will provoke lively conversation and sober contemplation.

Read. Think. Discuss. Grow.
