Virtual Reading Groups
Connect for an hour per week with smart, open-minded people
Upcoming Groups will be announced soon!
A Virtual Book Club for People Who Love to Learn
Our Virtual Reading Groups are designed to give you the experience of a book club focused on deep and thought-provoking topics, without needing to leave your home. Join other open-minded and curious people once a week to learn together in civil online video discussions. All readings and materials are provided. You just need an internet connection!
The Center will invite an expert facilitator to ensure a meaningful discussion on the readings, ask provocative questions, and keep the conversation moving in a respectful manner. Each session lasts 75 minutes and groups meet once a week for 3-4 weeks. A simple tutorial on our user-friendly video conferencing platform is provided in the first session.
There’s no need to be an expert on the topic in order to participate. You only need to be eager to learn, discuss, and expand your understanding of the world.
Topics That Matter
The topics discussed for each group session will vary. The Center will curate topics of interest that spark interesting conversations with relevant reading materials. We welcome topic suggestions; contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your idea.
What is the best way to care for the poor?
What role does social media have on civility and public discourse?
How should we approach immigration?
Can inequality be fixed?
